Collision: Conflict of Sacred Realities by Fatima Killeen

Exhibition and Shows

6 Sep 2019 to 27 Oct 2019

Collision draws attention to the conflict of sacred realities between East and West. The works are inspired by Islamic art with its Arab culture alongside references to Andalusian heritage. It is a celebration of beauty and generosity, bringing understanding and resolve to the negative stereotype surrounding the Arab and Muslim communities in Australia.

The works shed light on the fragility of culture and tradition; an insight into the struggling and divided communities living with complex issues and a persistent national media contingent continuously broadcasting messages of condemnation and disapproval. Collision engages people and invites them to a dialogue of understanding and tolerance. The installations communicate a unique cultural and spiritual perspective and a universal message of peace. The exhibition expresses concerns for the humanitarian, political and environmental impact that Western control has imposed on Arab and Muslim countries. Irrespective of the emphasis on the destruction of war, the works provide a space for contemplation and healing.

Fatima Killeen believes that a unified society of multicultural components is what guarantees tolerance, coherence and the wellbeing of the environment which we all share. Diversity is determined by our respect for the logic of nature and belief in multiculturalism.
