About

Two of the world’s leading audio-visual artists give voice to the world’s immigrants and refugees in these emotionally engaging new video installations.

Acclaimed at the 2017 Venice Biennale, South-African artist Candice Breitz’s Love Story features Hollywood stars Julianne Moore and Alec Baldwin. Their compelling performances bring to life the deeply personal experiences of refugees who’ve fled their countries in desperate circumstances.

Australian artist Angelica Mesiti’s latest work also offers unusual insight into the immigrant experience. It is a melancholic journey into the song and music of diverse communities living in the Danish city of Aarhus. Exquisitely captured with the artist’s characteristically dream-like nuance, Mother Tongue reveals the role of music in defining and retaining cultural identity and tradition. Angelica Mesiti is Australia’s representative artist at the 2019 Venice Biennale.

Curated in association with Chris Malcolm, Director, Curtin Gallery.

Presented in association with the John Curtin Gallery
