A solo exhibition of new works by Dawit Dersolign 

Dawit Dersolign doesn't call himself an artist. As a child, he experimented with artmaking, then returned to it for a few years as a teenager living in a refugee camp in Sudan. Beginning work at Life Raft Tasmania in 2017 presented Dawit with an array of waste materials, and creative possibilities, that prompted the work he makes today. Dawit’s works are colourful, playful and decorative – and often functional. This exhibition presents mixed media sculptural, 2D and interactive works made from reclaimed industrial waste such as pool noodles, Christmas baubles, thermal blankets, packing cardboard and even recycled industrial glue.

Constance ARI works across Country cared for by the Palawa of lutruwita and the Tasmanian Aboriginal Community. We acknowledge the Traditional Custodians of Country throughout the so called ‘Australia’, as well as First Nations people from elsewhere, and their deep connection to the lands, skies and waterways over which sovereignty was never ceded.  We pay our respect to all Elders; we are grateful for their continued sharing of knowledge and Culture.
