SMALL TOWN FETISH

Celebration event: Friday 21 February 6-8pm
Local Morwell artist, Pezaloom has developed a photographic practice concerned with ghosts of lives lived. This major survey exhibition will include images from his ‘Dopa Kinesia’ series developed in response to Parkinson disease which is slowly taking control of his body.
Another major suite of works documents an abandoned home in Morwell in which remain personal and resonant artefacts of the previous residents. Poetic works such as his images of the detritus that gathers in the corners of rooms also feature in the exhibition. Pezaloom’s art is one of humanity, humour and poetry.
