Where I Lay My Head

May 24, 2017 - June 4, 2017

Once again, #Dysturb has returned to the streets of Melbourne to install large-scale photojournalism in its streets, this time with a parallel exhibition at Hillvale Gallery.

Where I Lay My Head centers around the idea of family, and community, in the hopes of challenging stereotypes, deepening understanding and raising awareness of issues that affect their infrastructure. This intervention highlights the increasing numbers of displaced persons, and how communities are affected by displacement.

12 storytellers will show their perspectives – both in paste-ups on the streets and series of work in the gallery.

Exhibiting photojournalists include Barat Ali Batoor, Ismail Ferdous, Malin Fezehai, Daro Sulakauri, David Maurice-Smith, Emin Ozmen, Ashley Gilbertson, Jane Hahn, Laura Boushnak Photography and Alexandra Rose Howland.

Additional work shown in the gallery walls include Amr Alfiqy and Alana Holmberg, plus a 360 virtual reality story made by S1T2 in collaboration with World Bank.
