Zakiria Tahirian, Untitled, watercolour and ink on paper

Every community has invisible problems. This series of work by artist Zakiria Tahirian is about refugees who have left everything behind and come to Australia, seeking a safe and peaceful place.

All they want is safety, but there are many hidden feelings that aren’t being shared more widely with society. Many are struggling with memories and finding the right place to share their stories.

This exhibition will use both coloured and invisible ink to uncover the feelings that many refugees grapple with, but are unable to find a place to express.
