Artist John Young Zerunge invites us on a journey into the lives of significant figures of the Chinese diaspora in Australia, exploring important events in Chinese-Australian history from the 1840s onwards. Re-interpreted memories are distilled into large-scale installations of chalk drawings, photographs, video works and paintings. A culmination of three recent history projects by the artist, this exhibition reflects on the forces of survival, memory and otherness that continue to shape Australia's contemporary social context, bringing to the surface the ways in which humans are fundamentally interconnected cultural beings. Featuring: John Young Zerunge
