Orbit: Minaal Lawn - 173 Forms

6 May—30 May 2021

Glenlyon based artist Minaal Lawn (b.1977) makes intimate, domestic scale ceramic objects that celebrate the reconciliation of her Indian heritage with her Australian upbringing.

Her work examines the transformation from an inherited culture, revisiting childhood stories and object symbolism, to one that is owned.

This is the fourth exhibition in CAM's Orbit program; a series of exhibitions by artists who live and work in Central Victoria.

Supported by: The Victorian Government through Creative Victoria's Strategic Investment Fund.
