Running from July 31st until September 26th Cement Fondu will host a newly commissioned solo presentation by artist Atong Atem.

Atong Atem is an Ethiopian born, South Sudanese artist and writer living in Narrm/ Melbourne.

Atem’s work explores the inherent intimacy of portraiture and photography as well as the role photographers take as story tellers. Atem interrogates photography as a framework for looking at the world and positioning people in it. She takes framing into a fantastical direction with the small portals over the subjects’ faces, inviting the viewer to look at them through a surreal and constructed lens.
