Event details

'Sinjar's People, Colour and Clay' is a series that aims to capture the resilience of human beings in the face of adversity, exhibited at the Nathan Homestead.

Using bright acrylic paint and clay on canvas, Dastan Othman re-imagines photographs taken by Zmnako Ismael, who documented the people who fled from Sinjar, Iraq through the Sinjari Desert towards the city of Duhok in August 2014.

Dastan came to New Zealand in 2015 and is now a permanent resident. Her most recent projects include showcasing her work at the Lakehouse Art Centre in Takapuna, taking part in the Wonder Women event at the Maritime Museum and holding exhibitions in the libraries at Albany and Birkenhead.
