Heimlich Unheimlich by Sieglinde Karl-Spence (visual images) and Hazel Smith (text), is an installation of collages and poetry that explores through family photographs the post-World War II period, personal and historical trauma, belonging and migration. It is composed of digitally printed polyester chiffon banners, a multimedia video, and hand-stitched objects reminiscent of body parts. The ambiguous relationship between heimlich and unheimlich (homely and unhomely) underlies the piece, which fictionalises the contrasting childhoods of Sieglinde Karl-Spence (German-Australian) and Hazel Smith (British-Jewish).
While there will be no formal opening event, this exhibition will be open to the public from Friday, 30 April - Thursday, 20 May at Gallery25, Building 10, Mount Lawley Campus, Edith Cowan University.
Date: Wednesday, 19 May 2021
