12 Works by Lara Chamas

1 February 2018


Lara Chamas | Di(mat)spora | carpet | 2016

Together with the contents of Di(cat)spora, I combined remnants of the rugs used to cut out the cats, and created these oddly shaped ambiguous amalgamated rugs. In short, Di(mat)spora is an exploration tensions felt between forces. Focused is my own dispersion felt between my Australian born culture, and Middle Eastern blood culture, my tensions felt between religion, culture. The video features myself covering my Fathers praying mat with these rug scraps, creating a patchwork rug of all sorts, my father then prays on the mess I’ve made. This work is a reflection on any displaced being, displaced in whatever sense.
