Opening: Tuesday 31 May, 6-8pm
Dates: 31 May-18 June 2011

'In-Transit' aims to examine the ontology of immateriality, transitions, identity and belonging.
Exploring the sense of belonging under the influence of transnationalism, the exhibition questions the immateriality of cultural attachments. Having to pack one’s belongings in a suitcase not only indicates the selection of personal burdens, but a tangible transcription of one’s transitory cultural attachments. Focusing on the repetitive action rather than the objects, the exhibition aims to articulate the mental state of transition in relation to the physical attachment. The overwhelming yet isolated experience enforced by the walls of suitcases will remind the viewer of being in transitions and in betweens, either physically or emotionally.

Nikki Lam is a Melbourne-based artist who focuses on photography, video art, performative work and new media installation. Since graduating from Monash University with a Bachelor of Visual Arts in 2009, Nikki has been exhibiting across Melbourne in both artist-run spaces and commercial galleries. Born in Hong Kong and often feeling like an outsider wherever she goes, her works are usually developed within the areas of multiculturalism, languages, the otherness of cultural identities and everything in between.
