Siamak Fallah, visual artist and religious refugee, is undertaking a performance installation to explore his bilingual dreams as he
sleeps in an inner-city gallery for two weeks. Siamak uses sour orange trees – a symbol of religious oppression of Baha’is – from
his birthplace Iran, combined with water, ochre and paper, to illustrate his dream… a dream he has not dreamt yet.
