Abstract

For some time now, I have been drawn to thinking about my life as a migrant to Tasmania.It ’s odd; how long it can take to realise that the subtle undercurrent of difference that haspervaded my life here could be used more purposefully as a tool for critical thinking.The physical displacement of migration is often accompanied by a mental one when thethoughts, feelings and associations attached to one place are removed to another, newplace. The artist and theorist Mieke Bal describes this dual physical and mentaldisplacement as a heterochronic experience of time or, a disruption in the regular flow oftime. My interpretation of this is that, as a migrant, I am perpetually aware of two (or more)time zones; the time of the old place and the time of the new place.How can the time of the migrant be made in a painting?
