The marvellous and magical are characteristics of both puppetry and surrealism used by Fiona West within her ongoing investigations into lived experiences of displacement and belonging. West’s exhibition features large-scale photographs and intimate projections that are handcrafted using a collage and puppet typology. Visual tricks, nostalgia, childhood desires, dreams and memories create a sense of the whimsy and fantastical that underpins West’s migratory experiences.
