 “My artwork reflects on windows and doors as a metaphor for opportunities that come and go in the lives of refugees in Australia. I like to think that when a door closes, a window might be opening somewhere else and that is exactly our lives as refugees. Being from South Sudan and growing up in the midst of the Sudanese civil war, I got to see many doors close, but other windows open. At seven years old I fled to the border of Uganda and South Sudan with my parents. It was another window opening for us. I lived in the Kakuma Refugee Camp in Kenya for six years, eating just one meal a day. The hand represents all refugees in Australia knocking on closed doors and trying hard to open windows too.”
