Simon Aubor is a Melbourne-based artist who works with photography, video and installation. His practice centres around themes of culture and identity, explored through the perspective of a first-generation Australian secular Jewish male view. His family migrated to Australia from Russia and Israel post-WWII and for generations they have had a connection to orthodox Judaism. Simon’s practice draws on this migration story, while placing it within a contemporary context, having grown up in a non-religious Australian community. Exploring a sense of both belonging and disconnection, the secular and the religious, Simon’s work examines the variable association’s with diasporic culture and Australian Jewish identity today. Simon graduated in a Bachelor of Fine Arts at RMIT in 2018 and currently works as a freelance photographer.
