Anthropocene

March 3 - 18, 2017

For Antidote’s first group show, I curated an exhibition at AirSpace Projects in Marrickville. Curating the exhibition involved contacting all artists and negotiating what works to exhibit within the given curatorial rationale. It also included supporting the production, delivery and installation of the show, as well as providing a curatorial short essay.

Combating Apathy, One Artwork at a Time

The first iteration of Antidote sees an exploration of the female body and the land on which it survives and thrives. Themed ‘Anthropocene’, the works manifest subversive views of this newly discovered and somewhat contentious geological epoch, in which the earth is defined by its negative interaction with humankind. The four artists chosen investigate unique stories of female bodies through a cross-cultural lens, while eliciting how they engage with their physical land – as well as the socio-political issues and cultural questions that may arise from such an interaction.

Featured artists include: Kawita Vatanajyankur, Nicole Monks, Andy Mullens and Laura Doggett of the Another Kind of Girl Collective. The exhibition ran from March 3-18 at Airspace Projects Gallery in Marrickville.
