Following two hugely successful runs in 2016 and 2017, Peter Blenkiron's exhibition Putting the Pieces of the Self Together One Moment at a Time is on display at The Dax Centre in Melbourne until 21 July, 2018.

Putting the Pieces of the Self Together One Moment at a Time offers a rare insight into the inner world of a child abuse survivor as he slowly learns to re-inhabit his body and mind.

Peter documented his personal journey on a smartphone and this photographic diary is said to offer rare insight into the inner world of a child abuse survivor.

Included in the exhibition is the artwork by Archibald Prize finalist 2016, Daniel Butterworth, featuring 30 portraits of child abuse survivors and advocates. It is a symbolic representation of the countless numbers of children abused in the Ballarat district.

A video recorded in Rome features Mr Blenkiron's personal reflections to the Royal Commission hearings in March 2016 and a short film about the exhibition by filmmaker Andrew Sully.

Visit the Dax Centre until 21 July, 2018 to view Putting the Pieces of the Self Together One Moment at a Time exhibition as it serves to raise awareness of the impacts of childhood trauma, including mental health issues, suicide and premature death.
