Exhibition: a personal Peranakan journey

26 OCTOBER 2016

A new exhibition has opened at Charles Sturt University (CSU) in Wagga Wagga exploring a modern interpretation of South East Asian Peranakan inspired design through flora, fauna and cuisine.The exhibition, Reflection: My Peranakan Journey, is the work of Bachelor of Creative Practice (Honours) student Ms Kerri-Anne Chin.The numerous art works include motif designs and a large scale replica of a traditional Peranakan house. Lecturer in graphic design from the School of Communication and Creative Industries at CSU in Wagga Wagga, Dr Belinda Paulovich, said "As graphic designers we're often asked to remove ourselves from our own social and cultural positions, experiences and biases, and view the world from the perspective of our client, our audience or our end-user."However, in this exhibition, Kerri-Anne has done the complete opposite."She reflects inwardly, considers the world from her own social and cultural position and displays a range of designs to present her experience of culture."In doing so, Kerri-Anne asks us to question the meaning of culture in our own lives."The free exhibition runs until Friday 11 November in the School of Communication and Creative Industries, building 21, near car park 5, Darnell-Smith Drive at CSU Wagga Wagga.
