Disconnect / Reconnect

Sin-Mae Chung, Selene Simcox & Rachael Garvey
24 August – 10September 2011   Opening 5.30pm Wednesday 24 August
Artist Talk: Tuesday 31 August, 7 – 9pm

Disconnect/Reconnect is a collective exhibition commenting on the social constructs of how identity is viewed and interpreted.

Social construction is dependent on contingent variables of our social selves, which is reinforced through more social constructs. Within the folds of social construction is identity: personal identity, social and cultural identity and identity of place. It is the expression of identity through the eyes of the artist that is experienced in Disconnect/Reconnect. Through a process of disengaging with the self, each artist re-examines identity from an altered perspective, challenging the predetermined and contrived social filters that identity is viewed through.
