Eating Wild Weeds is a collaboration between photographer Alex Flannery and Chinese born Australian poet Ouyang Yu. Images and words combine to investigate seeing, knowing, and experiencing life in another country, engaging questions of visitation, migration, communication and being part of a multi- national family.
Flannery’s photographs reflect his experience as an Australian of Irish descent in the Chinese cities of Xiangyang and Wuhan during 2019. Paired with Ouyang’s poetry recording the immigrant experience in Australia, the exhibition explores the complexities of cross-cultural understanding.
Eating Wild Weeds is showing from 21st April - 21st May 2022.
