Stories from the Other Side

A solo exhibition by ZIa Atahi

My biggest inspiration for this work; ‘stories from other side’ is my father’s journey of migration to Australia by boat fleeing the war in Afghanistan. It’s a story that is very close to me and yet very sad one too. While I was in Bogor, Indonesia I witnessed a lot of sufferings from mental illness, isolation, depression and loneliness. Throughout my work I don’t want to show that negative sides of the story because I seek a deeper connection to retain their self-determination. These people are inspiring, strong and talented. They should have the equal rights just like any other human beings.
