Koky Saly's series How Much longer Will You Live Like This explores the notion of displacement through the eyes of his mother, whose status has changed from fisherwoman to refugee, to Australian citizen to 'Asian-Australian'. Adopting lighting and composition cues from film noir cinema, these works engage the viewer in dramas that never fully reveal themselves - unravelling a story of loss and hidden strength. and although it is deeply personal and biographical, it is also anchored in Australia's history.
