GALLERY ONE

CAMILLE SERISIER - The Wonderful Land Of Oz

Humans dress as animals in this thinly veiled yet playfully absurd versionof Australia, as clouds reference national identity, the Sydney Opera Housegoes on tour, and a koala admires Ken Done. Camille Serisier’s thoughtful works question the storybook narrative of settler colonialism and pioneering adventure. Serisier critiques a European cultural heritage that remains inherently problematic.

MICHAEL COOK - Through My Eyes

By morphing the facial features of living Indigenous Australians into the physiognomy of some of Australia’s most prominent historical public figures, the artist challenges the observer to scrutinise these portraits from an alternative point-of-view; that is, through Indigenous eyes. In so doing, these powerful images implore the viewer to reflect upon conventional approaches to history and sanction a re-evaluation of our delusive collective narratives.
