In the 21st century, feelings of love and empathy are filtered through social media platforms and 24-hour news cycles. The film-based and video art in Love, Displaced offers new and innovative modes of navigating the white noise of contemporary life towards places of re-sensitisation and emotional engagement. Works in the exhibition provide insights into personal and political situations of displacement caused by family breakdown, racial or political oppression and the loss of traditional culture.
The exhibition brings together some of the world’s leading contemporary artists: Jacobus Capone (WA), Richard Lewer (NZ), Tracey Moffatt & Gary Hillberg (Australia), Christian Thompson (Australia) AES+F (Russia), Jeremy Deller & Cecilia Bengolea (UK, Argentina/France) and Roee Rosen (Israel).
