Hari seeks self-actualization, examination and release through her artistic practice. She creates collages employing a wide range of media drawn from items collected over her lifetime. Nomas asked Hari to ‘consider Christmas and the contrasts between its original meaning and what it signifies today’. The resulting body of work “Santa Baby” utilises her religious and cultural iconography, personal photos and both created and found text.
