Omar Musa – All My Memories are Mistranslations

Humble House Gallery
93 Wollongong Street, Fyshwick ACT
4 May – 2 June 2024
Open Wednesday to Sunday 10am to 4pm

Omar Musa is a Bornean-Australian author, visual artist and poet from Queanbeyan.

This exhibition of woodcuts is based on Omar’s realisation that many of the conversations he had with his grandparents, which became part of his personal narrative, were in fact misheard or misunderstood.

His mash-up of the two very different places he lives between — Malaysian Borneo and Brooklyn, New York City – creates a playful, unsettling world of opposites, inhabited by ghosts. There is a clash of rose-tinted romanticism against latter day capitalism and ecological collapse.
