Year 9 Artwork, 'Unseen Battles', Auctioned At Christie's

Our Year 9 Harris Experience students have created a magnificent work of art called Unseen Battles, which is to be auctioned off at the prestigious Christie’s Auction House.

The piece expresses problems that we combat and hide from society for fear of being ostracised, with the hope that we become more open minded and kind towards each other.

Unseen battlesWhat students say about Unseen Battles 

Initially interested with the prospect of exploring internal conflicts, we collectively decided to represent the challenges that many people face without being able to express any of it publicly.

We incorporated many different sides of internal conflicts; existential, beauty standards, freedom to practice a religion and the repercussions of toxic relationships and domestic violence. 

Each mask highlights a different issue; all collectively showcasing the struggles faced by many in society."

The Unseen Battles itself expresses problems that we combat and hide from society in fear for being ostracised. Each mask highlights a different issue; all collectively showcasing the struggles faced by many in society.

The idea of a mask also emphasises our need to put on a display and present an appearance which we feel is acceptable to society. The conjoined heads show that internal battles are not limited to people of a particular race. The masks are physically projected off the heads to show that they can be removed with support from others, emphasising the power of unity and community.  

We hope that this piece will enlighten you on the growing issues around the world and allow you to be more open minded and kind towards everyone around you. It is no secret that we all face battles, but these battles can become lighter and easier if we work together to find solutions and more peace.
