LARA CHAMAS

Lara Chamas
(S)laughter
2015

My work aims to portray the discourse of the divide in the Australian and Westernised community, Right vs. Left, Familiar vs. Other and People vs. Power. The recent Australian political climate, including the rise of Islamaphobia, has resulted in clashes amongst us, Australian vs. Australian. My practice aims to create an informed, provocative, and engaging body of political based work, surrounding both Middle Eastern and Western culture. By merging the two cultures I aim to bring tradition into the contemporary sphere, and familiarize the unfamiliar.
