Artist's statement

26-year-old Iraqi twins, Ghassan and Mrwan, asylum seekers waiting for temporary protection visas, in a Shepparton group home. As Shias in Irag, the suffering of beatings and threats drove them to take the boat then five months in detention. Refused their first application, they wait to see the Merit Review Tribunal, in limbo unable to work or study english.
