SELINA HALIM & JAN RYAN



Selina Halim and Janita Ryan have collaborated to produce the final Sample show at Platform for the year. Ain't No Thing as a Sanity Clause is a tongue-in-cheek Christmas installation and appears at first to be a colourful and festive window display, replete with flashing lights, santas and reindeers. On closer inspection, however, the installation contains powerful imagery referencing Australia's position on post-colonialism, indigenous rights and the destructive forces at play in the world that often lie hidden within the commodification of belief.
