Publisher Open Space
ArtistsSemsar Siahaan
AuthorJohn Luna
SummarySemsar Siahaan has been analyzing the "man on the street" since arriving in Victoria after leaving his home country for political reasons. His refugee stay in Victoria has produced some of his finest drawings, and this drawing installation is no different. Drawn on cardboard found in the alleys of Victoria, these works portray "Everyman" in some of our most unappealing moments. Each work is simply drawn in conte with minimal colouring on recycled cardboard, which has its own political implications.
