Atong Atem is an Ethiopian born, South Sudanese artist and writer living in Narrm/ Melbourne. Atem works primarily with photography and video to explore migrant narratives, postcolonial practices in the African diaspora and the historical relevance of photo mediums. Atem’s work interrogates concepts of home and identity through a critical and sentimental lens and through the conceptual potential of framing and fantasy in image making. Atem has exhibited her work across Australia including at MUMA Monash, Gertrude Contemporary, Australian Centre for Contemporary Art and at Sydney Contemporary art fair as well as Internationally at Red Hook Labs, Vogue Fashion Fair in Milan and Unseen Amsterdam art fair. Atem was the recipient of the inaugural National Gallery of Victoria and MECCA M-Power scholarship grant in 2018 as well as the Brisbane Powerhouse Melt Portrait Prize in 2017.
