West Projections - I Call Home Sweet Home Four Different Places

This project brings together the work of Sibe Lumani and Rose-Linda Portelli, both artists from the AAV SRS Studios. The projections draw on common interests of home and place, and how they shape our identities. 'I Call Home Sweet Home Four Different Places' is a playful explosion of colour and storytelling. West Projections is an intimate place-based community projection festival. Exploring places big and small you can encounter projections in various settings from tiny boxes to shop front windows.

Sibe Lumani was born in the old St Vincent's hospital in Melbourne and has lived in Broadmeadows, Shepperton and Werribee before moving to Footscray thirteen years ago. She is a mother to six children, three boys and three girls. Sibe is a prolific artist, working in painting and drawing, exploring themes of home, place and family.

Rose-Linda Portelli was born in Melbourne, she lives and practices her art from Footscray. Rose-Linda explores the theme of home, place and family and regularly visits Malta where she originates from. Her work is expressed through drawing and painting in a colourful and playful aesthetic.
