Memory and identity are central concepts in our work and in this instance we will draw inspiration from the narrative of the famous Pina Bausch and her piece Wind From The West to create an artwork, a kind of allegory that intertwines myth, fantasy, history to make reference to multilayered notions of identity.
Dr Audrey Fernandes Satar is an academic, researcher and visual artist who lives and works in Perth, Western Australia. Her body of work involves the investigation of the politics of identity, transnationality and the border. Audrey has exhibited nationally and internationally. She traces her heritage to the people of Gaunco Vaddo, who left Goa during the nineteenth century.
Mr Mahomad Arif Satar holds degrees in Environmental Science, Education and in Fine Arts. His background is layered with experiences of migrancy and border-crossing. This ephemeral state of trans-national belonging is reflected in his art practice where a multiplicity of mediums are reconfigured dependently – to form a body of work that encompasses sculpture, the moving image and sound.
