Ahmed Khalidi & Rua Hashlamoun
I was not born here, but she was...

28 June - 22 July 2012



I was not born here, but she was...
is a collaborative exhibition by Ahmed Khalidi and Rua Hashlamoun exploring ideas of

identity and belonging through the artists' personal and ancestral journeys from land to land, beginning in the Middle East

and traversing around the Earth to Sydney, Australia.

 

I was not born here, but she was... presents an integrated series of lushly layered and interlacing mixed media painting

collages, utilising typography and iconography to map out historical anecdotes of time and place that germinated from the

couples experiences of 're-identifying' after a move Jordan to Australia.

 

Ahmed Khalidi, is an artist, illustrator and graphic designer having exhibited in Sydney, Adelaide, Amman, London, Doha, Dubai and the International Biennial of Contemporary Art 2007 in Spain.

Rua Hashlamoun is an architect and designer with a bachelor of Architecture, UTS.

I was not born here, but she was... is an event of the Open Marrickville Festival (23 June - 1 July) supported by Marrickville Council.
