Mohini Chandra: Travels in a New World
21 September – 20 October, 2001
Mohini Chandra is a Fijian-Indian artist currently based in London. Travels in a New World consists of an installation of 100 photographs and work on video. The black and white images are of the ‘backs’ of photographs collected from communities of the Fijian-Indian diaspora scattered throughout the world. In her video work, Chandra uses the photo album as a means to revisit the past, evoking images from childhood and half-remembered generations.
Mohini Chandra has shown internationally including Bluecoat Gallery, Liverpool UK, Kampnagel Art Gallery Hamburg, Johannesburg Biennale and Courtauld Institute London. This is her first solo exhibition in Australia.
