"Asunder" meaning: to tear apart or to separate

Asunder is an exhibition by Heritier Kasanda that encompasses photography, poetry and videography as a mode of storytelling to explore the opportunity of separation.

When Heritier first came across the word "Asunder", it felt heavy like thunder.  He ventured deep and endeavoured to make the word feel softer through a return to poetry and narrative.

These are his stories, collected and conveyed through the heaving of long poetic sighs of silence on porches, the swaying of guava trees in the summer night sky as well as the wrinkles on skin that stain through lifetimes.

Join Heritier for a free artist talk at the Rockingham Arts Centre on Saturday 14 January from 2pm - 3pm.
