Gungahlin Arts

Around Gungahlin, Around the World is a series of photographs by Antoinette Karsten, commissioned through the Art in Place program and featuring people who have migrated from all over the world and now call Gungahlin home.  View these glimpses into the diverse lives of local residents at the Gungahlin Library from 20-28 March as part of the Celebrate Gungahlin Artist Showcase.

 

ARTIST STATEMENT

We should have known in our first weeks here in Gungahlin, when some of our kids’ first friends were Chinese and Korean and our neighbours were Sri-Lankan, that we just moved into a vibrantly varied cultural environment.

And so it was. This project provided a very special glimpse into the daily lives, celebrations and dreams of some of our culturally diverse friends and fellow Gungahlin residents, and presents fragments of their life stories as hints to both our peculiarities and similarities.

Why travel? Make friends in Gungahlin and experience the world in a nutshell.

For Barbara, who moved from Gungahlin to Germany
