In Light of Soul, Avan Anwar explores ideas around
rebirth and new beginnings through the symbol
of the flower, usually associated with spring and
new life. Yet over time, flowers are destined for
decay. Nothing in life is permanent and durable
but rather in constant change and renewal.
Everything is moving towards the end, yet the end
is a new beginning and life cyclically continues in
this process.

Drawing upon the artist’s memories of relocating
from Kurdistan to Australia, the Light of Soul
installation is a response to the experience of
identity crisis and displacement; of balancing
emotions and internal agony with external
circumstances. Each form of a flower represents
an element of life reconciling past and present,
establishing a new cultural identity through
material expression.
