Samstag Alumni by Scholar

2019

Elyas Alavi | Georgia Saxelby

The University of South Australia is thrilled to announce Elyas Alavi (SA) and Georgia Saxelby (NSW) as the recipients of the 2019 Samstag Scholarships!

Elyas Alavi is a cross-disciplinary artist and poet based in Adelaide. His multifaceted art practice is driven by ideas of social justice, memory, displacement and exile. Born in Afghanistan, Alavi lived for many years in Iran following an intensification of war in his homeland, arriving in Australia in 2007 as a refugee.

‘A lyrical poetic sensibility weaves throughout Elyas Alavi’s diverse practices’, writes Canberra-based curator and arts writer Virginia Rigney. ‘His works tantalise with suggestion in a transcultural dialogue that resists conventional boundaries of place and identity. Alavi may be safe in Australia now, but his work is conceptually unflinching.’

Georgia Saxelby is an interdisciplinary artist living and working between Sydney and the United States. Her participatory practice engages with issues of public social space, collective ritual behaviour and notions of sacred space in both ancient and contemporary cultures.

‘An urgent curiosity propels Georgia Saxelby to make art of our time.’ Rigney continues, ‘with the Samstag Scholarship, Saxelby plans to return to the United States and continue to study, research and make work of these extraordinary times’.
