Aldona Kmiec – In the Process of Healing photo-installation

19 August, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 17 September, 2017 @ 4:00 pm

In the process of healing Aldona Kmiec Ballarat Foto Biennale exhibition

In the Process of Healing

Created specifically for installation at the Ballarat Welcome Centre, this exhibition attempts to remove the stigma around trauma and normalise conversations that are difficult.

“My vision is to give hope. To document the invisible lives, drowned by society’s attempts to maintain normalcy through keeping their eyes shut, pretending that lives don’t exist, referring to them as numbers.”

So many people have been affected either directly or indirectly by traumatic experiences resulting from displacement, mental and physical abuse, not just in Australia but all over the world. These are important conversations in any community. Learning how to talk about trauma and finding a way to move forward is beneficial to the whole community’s wellbeing. I hope this exhibition will create a space to do just that.
