Virtual Gallery: Evie Hassiotis, ‘Xenitia’

Xenitia is a solo exhibition by Evie Hassiotis, presented in The Mill Showcase Gallery for SALA 2020. Roughly translated, Xenitia means self imposed exile. This project explores Greek migration to Australia during the 1950’s, speaking from Evie’s personal experience alongside the experiences of her family and friends. Evie has investigated the impact of migration, following narratives through the generations in order to more deeply understand how culture is transmitted and how migrant families have built communities and culture in Australia. Evie’s expressive multi-arts practice builds layers of understanding through the use of collage and paint alongside dolls made by individuals within her community, and a film ‘Made in Greece’. She speaks about community, identity and the role of art in the understanding of the self.
