Lachie Hinton | LIMBOLAND


Opening Hours: Tuesday – Sunday 10am – 4pm

LIMBOLAND brings together the entirety of Lachie Hinton’s work on human displacement, refugees and migration. It catalogues his response to two significant events regarding immigration in recent times; the European refugee crisis in 2016 and Australia’s controversial offshore detention of refugees and asylum seekers on Nauru. While his documentary of these issues presents different experiences of lives upended by conflict and oppression, it shares an exploration of the underlying theme of living in limbo. His series of paintings, drawings, photographs and documentary filmmaking seek to humanise ordinary people who have become displaced as a result of war and terror.

Public programs

As part of the LIMBOLAND exhibition program, we will be running the following events.

Share a meal, share a story
Following the panel discussion, the Bas, in collaboration with ESC’s Community Development and the Refugee Action Collective, Eurobodalla would like to invite you to share a meal and share a story. This event is part of the official Refugee Week celebrations which uses food as the conduit of bringing people together. Coupled with storytelling we hope this event will educate while also providing an opportunity to meet new people and hear firsthand stories from a refugee. Please bring a plate of your favourite food that is representative of your ethnic or cultural background. All welcome.
