Next Brisbane speaker
SYMMETRY SPEAKER #1: GWAN TUNG DOROTHY LAU
Gwan Tung Dorothy Lau is a contemporary artist working with digitally manipulated media and installation. She explores the natural compulsion for social acceptance and personal excellence with reference to Psychoanalysis theories. Adopting an autobiographical approach, she stages an internal dialogue to convey the perplexity of her social identity - an amalgam of her Hong Kong upbringing and Australian education.
SYMMETRY SPEAKER #2: ELIZABETH LE EHN Creative
Eliz Le is a Multidisciplinary Creative, working in the fields of film, graphic design and photography. Whilst freelancing under her business name, EHN Creative, she balances her role as the Designer and Videographer for Luvo Store. She cultivates creativity in all that she does: allowing her passions for storytelling, social justice and faith-centered design to flourish.
SYMMETRY SPEAKER #3: DEENA LYNCH aka Spectator Jonze
Spectator Jonze is the moniker of the artist within Deena Lynch. Jonze was born in Yokohama, Japan to a Taiwanese mother and Australian father. She migrated to Australia under interesting and less than certain circumstances when she was 6 years old.
She grew in many different homes and situations – not quite an orphan, not quite belonging anywhere. This put her in touch with a myriad of people and demons coming from disjointed backgrounds themselves or from a position of power. Being in contact with emotional, physical and sexual abuse pushed her into the safety of PTSD where suppression, depression and dissociation became a survival tactic. Having always carried a creative mind, it was only natural for Jonze to use art and music as an outlet of expression. 2017 was the year she finally came to an age and understanding to tackle her mental health, quirks and trauma. Art became a medium she utilised as a cathartic vessel to uncover the secrets she had even hidden from herself.
