Join us for a conversation between current BMKOES artist-in-residence Lena Rosa Händle and curator John Kenneth Paranada as they discuss and illuminate Händle’s practice and process. Utilising an array of media across photography, video, installations, collages and sculptures, the artist will discuss her artworks that navigates and unfolds the intricacies of how images affect the individual and collective consciousness of people viewed from the prism of social realities concerning nature and society.
