Eve of Reconstruction
August 3, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm UTC+10
TextaQueen’s practice articulates complex politics of gender, sexuality, race and identity, primarily through portraiture rendered in fibre-tip marker.
This exhibition is a science-fictional contemplation on desiring connection to a land as an uninvited visitor whose ancestry belongs elsewhere. Referencing the artifice of high fashion photography in temporary costumes she constructs from the natural surrounds, TextaQueen challenges ethnographic projections onto her brown-skinned body posed upon Wodi Wodi country.
OPENING: Thursday 3 August, 6pm – 8pm
EXHIBITION: Friday 4 August – Saturday 26 August
VENUE: FCAC Gabriel Gallery
