Please join us for the opening reception of Afterlife by Vasantha Yogananthan.

Afterlife is the sixth instalment in Vasantha Yogananthan’s seven part series A Myth of Two Souls, a visual exploration of the Ramayana, an ancient epic dating to the third century BC which remains pervasive in everyday Indian life.

This exclusive Australian exhibition mixes daily life with staged pictures, including colour photography, traditionally hand-painted photos, as well as mixed media and video.

PHOTO Australia respectfully acknowledges the traditional custodians of the lands upon which we work and live, and the rich and diverse Indigenous cultures across what is now called Australia. For over 60,000 years, Indigenous arts and culture have thrived on this sacred land, and we honour Elders and cultural leaders past and present. This was, and always will be, Aboriginal land.
