Belonging – Photography by Ekaterina Shipova Bell

Belonging – Kinship, Similarity, Proximity, and Involvement is a kind of cultural code, a feeling of one’s roots, belonging to a common culture, and something that unites people who are unfamiliar with each other.

An exhibition of photographs by artist Ekaterina Shipova Bell invites us into the lives of 16 women and their migration story to South Australia from Russia. They are photographed in their homes and surrounded by treasured belongings, objects and attributes of their historical homeland. Each of them share their unique story through their belongings, brought from their motherland, or inherited from parents and grandparents. The exhibition is dedicated to this phenomenon and their incredible stories.
