They farmed tapioca, oranges and rice: Camille Laddawan

When

Every day, 11pm to 4pm Thursday 30 November 2023 to Thursday 25 January

Cost

Free

They farmed tapioca, oranges and rice poetically examines the multiple cultural and biological lineages that artist Camille Laddawan and her partner Roslyn Orlando will share with their child.

Through the process of understanding a child’s origin story, the birthing parent, the non-birthing parent, and the donor each hold and offer a different relationship to ancestry and heritage. Each has a nuanced history of tradition, migration, cultural loss, and change.

In a series of beaded works, the exhibition considers the relationship between what is inherited and the threads that culminate in a child’s understanding of their identity through storytelling.
