As migrants, Sengha Peckham and Kristin Diemer share a sense of dislocation and loss of cultural heritage. In Tracing Silence, they explore their connection to place using different and alternative photographic processes.
Senga Peckham lived in several cultures before settling in Australia. A late arrival to image making, a sense of displacement informs her work as a comfortable outsider seeking a connection to place. The philosophy supporting her artistic practice is born from a desire to understand the impermanence and interconnectedness of all existence.
As a migrant, like so many Australians, Kristin Diemer uses photography to explore expressions of identity and connection to place. Her current artistic practice re-explores the world by moving back to alternative processes, selecting the process best suited to express the image.
