Nexus Arts

“Concrete Me” is a collaborative exhibition between emerging artists Elyas Alavi (Afghanistan/Iran/Australia) and André Lawrence (Australia/France) which explores the sharing of distant childhood narratives at the fringes of memory. Influenced by displacement, the fragmentation of being under repeated disruptions to their cultural landscapes, the artists have sought to reflect on personal histories through a multidisciplinary body of work steeped in visual imagery and symbolism as a means of concretising the self.
