REALMS, featuring the work of Dina Hamed, Emily Hamel and Clara Laratta engages with themes of spirituality; in this context, a phenomena identifying the ways in which the human spirit is connected. Intersectional narratives emerge through each artist’s diverse lived experiences including those of religion, culture, ethnicity, feminism, identity, biophilia and naturalism.
The works on display, despite each artist’s highly individualized approach, acknowledge how these experiences likewise contribute to a collective understanding of spiritual space. “How can our experiences tell us about ourselves and each other as inquisitive, self-reflective, and interconnected beings?”
