Gods of Suburbia is a visual analysis of religious faith within the context of the modern forces of technology, science and secularism. The series plays with narrative and religious iconography to communicate how organised belief has become twisted within a global framework driven by consumerism and greed. The project challenges the viewer — religious or secular — to embark on a journey of self-reflection as they contemplate the relevance of dogma in modernity.


Dina Goldstein was born in Tel Aviv, Israel, in 1969. Her creative practice explores the visual language of pop surrealism, where she stages narrative compositions that expose the underbelly of modern life, challenging the notions of beauty, gender, sex, and religion. Dina’s work has been shown internationally and has held solo exhibitions at the Addis Foto Festival in Ethiopia, the Venice Jewish Museum in Italy, the Capture Photo Festival in Canada, and the Mesa Contemporary Arts Museum in the United States. 2018, she was awarded the Arte Laguna Belgium Residency in 2018, shortlisted for the 2016 Sony Awards, and was the Grand Prize Winner of Prix VIRGINIA in 2014, which included a subsequent exhibition in Paris, France.
