PARADISE’S PARASITE III /天堂寄生者

13 – 26 July

 

Brenton Rossow, Darren Tynan, Harrison See, Lianxi Zhang and Rebecca Jensen

Imagine a world in which giant machines could crush you in an instant. If your home, family, and food lay on the other side of a perilous obstacle course, would you try and make it to the other side? Imagine you lived in a land where hairy creatures set those machines on fire and wrapped them around trees. This land with a belly and teeth swallows beasts and spits out treasures for the immortals to see.

 

Paradise’s Parasite III is a collaborative exhibition by five mixed media artists, who have been drawn to Australia and China by love and fate. Their mission is to share a world and its creatures scarred by the gluttony of a poisonous feast.

ORIENTALISM & IMPERIALISM:

VEILED, UNVEILED & REVILED

11 – 24 August

 

Aasiya Evans’ solo exhibition through a digital engagement creates a unique dramaturgy in navigating the Oriental/Occidental dialogue through a racial discourse of Othering. Her artwork inspired by Medieval wall hangings and Persianate carpet designs parlay in-betwixt and in-between eastern and western art and culture. The Arabian Nights ,The Thousand and One Nights, popular novella assists as the default backdrop for Orientalism & Imperialism: Veiled, Unveiled & Reviled, through addressing the importance of this text’s cultural continuity as a postcolonial result toward our contemporary awareness of Islam and the Arab Muslim. Her art draws upon historical and socio-political contemporary moments, to parody the misinformation found in the popular culture by mimicking Islamophobic sentimentalities of the Islamic Arab Muslim stereo “terror” type in order to facilitate a discussion as a consequent aftermath of 9/11.
