Amal Laala Returns
Thursday 15 November at 7pm
A video work
Amal Laala was a resident artist at Platform in 2010. Amal is visiting Finland from her current home of Australia and we thought it would be nice to catch up on her activities the past 8 years.
Amal Laala is a socially engaged, site-specific artist, whose work is often temporary and fleeting, revolving around current social issues, experimentation and play.
In 2010 she said, “My current work in progress is “Father, Father, Father”, where I am investigating how stories can be told and interpreted, ranging from spiritual, political to personal. During my residency at Platform I will continue developing these central themes of storytelling, family and interpretation. Investigating my Finnish grandparents and their past, I am to research elements of their lives using the little information I have.”
What is she up to now? Come and find out. It will be worth it, we promise.
