Christ Church has three students’ works currently on show as part of the Year 12 Perspectives 2013 exhibition at the Art Gallery of Western Australia. The annual event, one of the gallery’s most popular exhibitions, showcases selected works by Year 12 Visual Arts students.
Class of 2013 leavers Rohan Golestani, Ben Payne and Nathan Tran were among WA’s top art students selected in this year’s exhibition. The three old boys attended the opening of the exhibition along with their Year 12 teacher Gisela Züchner-Mogall and other members of the School’s Art Department.
Rohan’s work, a series of Polaroid photographs titled Loss – First World Problems, looks at the current generation’s ‘perceived’ problems and their superficiality compared to the gravity of life-changing events.
Ben’s sculpture, titled GM, comprises an installation and photographs which comments on genetic modification how close scientists are to growing human ’spare parts’.
Nathan’s mixed media sculpture, Still No Names, explores censorship and is influenced by Marina Abramović’s bone installation, a statement against war in the Balkans, and Hungarian holocaust survivor Alice Lok Cahana paintings.
Mrs Züchner-Mogall encouraged the Christ Church community to visit the exhibition, which is on now until 5 May.
