Sat 2 Sep 2023 to Sat 14 Oct 2023

West Space is delighted to premiere THUNDERBLOOM by Sydney-based artist HOSSEI, September 2 to October 14, 2023.

THUNDERBLOOM broadens established ideas of care within migrant families, by exploring the relationship between mother and son through a framework of healing.

HOSSEI presents an album of songs in the gallery, with accompanying music videos that centre his mother, Nahid as the star of the show. These songs recalibrate the relationship between mother and son, from one that privileges a hierarchy of responsibility, to one of collaborative exploration, curiosity, imagination and discovery.

THUNDERBLOOM celebrates all mothers, particularly those from migrant communities, by giving them a platform and a voice atypical of their perceived place in society.

The limited edition THUNDERBLOOM vinyl, featuring all 9 tracks, is available to purchase throughout the exhibition's run, or until sold out.

THUNDERBLOOM live performance Saturday 16 September, 2 → 3pm at West Space in COllingwood Yards - find more info here.

THUNDERBLOOM is presented as part of the West Space 2023 Commissions Program. It is made possible through The Australia Council for the Arts and Creative New South Wales, and supported by Centre for Projection Art.
