PAUL HANDLEY | VESTS

June 21, 2017 - August 6, 2017

Inter-disciplinary artist Paul Handley presents a new site-specific installation especially for Bundoora Homestead. Within the historic walls, the artist will challenge and provoke the audience to confront the ongoing global plight of refugees escaping displacement from their homelands. Last year, the artist travelled to Lesvos to document the piles of discarded life jackets by the estimated 500,000 refugees who have landed on northern shores of the Greek Island since 2015. Vests consists of suspended cheap fluorescent jackets glowing within the confines of the Pantry space.
