Through his vivid folk art paintings, Ahmed Hagi tries to reconcile childhood memories of his homeland Somalia with its disintegration. He processes his displacement to Australia by creating an imaginary world that meshes idealised Mogadishu and Sydney landscapes. His images also allude to Somalia's brutal political upheavals and Hagi's personal traumas of migration, racism and illness. As Hagi recounts his life story, he demonstrates how a creative person can be thousands of miles away from their physical location in a spirited imagination.
