Beyond the rhetoric

Beyond the Rhetoric is an interactive exhibition by Afghanistan-Australian artist Sha Sarwari that explores migration, identity, and place through the power of language. Utilising the poetic conveyance of Nastaliq, a form of Persian calligraphy, this exhibition articulates the plight of many refugees, and invites visitors to enact gestures of healing through words of affirmation. These words have been emotionally elected by the artist to counter the historic and on-going trauma of colonialism, war, prejudice and systematic racism that have been witnessed within and beyond the artist’s life. Visitors are invited to make their own take-home rubbing artworks from these words—an act that demonstrates art as a form of activism and a tool to spread positive energy.
