Refugee Week 2019 - Exploring lives in limbo at the Bas

Lachie Hinton is no stranger to tension. The political tension of national borders crossed, the personal tension of life in detention; Hinton observes, captures, then retells the ebb and flow of crisis through painting and drawing, photojournalism and film.Hinton’s latest exhibition LIMBOLAND opens at the Bas this week. Eurobodalla Council’s arts coordinator Indi Carmichael said the exhibition was Hinton’s response to two significant immigration events.“LIMBOLAND presents in full Hinton’s work around both the 2016 European refugee crisis and Australia’s offshore detention program,” Ms Carmichael said. “We’re excited to present this thoughtful and thought provoking exhibition, which builds on Hinton’s previous work exploring the effect of social and political forces on the human experience. Hinton is no stranger to zones of tension. He’s previously presented work based on the experience of Sydney’s prostitutes and daily life in isolated North Korea.” Ms Carmichael said it was a powerful show perfectly timed for Refugee Week. “This exhibition isn’t just for the arty types. It’s for anyone who wonders what it is to be human when forces outside of your control overtake your life,” she said. The exhibition runs to Sunday 7 July. The Basil Sellers Exhibition Centre, Moruya, is open from Tuesday to Sunday, 10am-4pm.
