Ambiguous Fragility | 16 November – 25 November 2012
Opening Night | 6.00pm Thursday 15 November 2012
A show by Deanne Jolley, Jessie Imam, Jess Wilson and Louise Molesworth
This group show centres around the ideas of fragility that the human body has been attributed with. Whether through adornment, financial striving, social placement or physical moulding; we all experience the need to promote and protect our physical selves from perceived dangers. Without immediate threat from wild beasts or threatening neighbours, this culture we exist in ( especially the Western one ) has created a new set of dangers and we have created a new set of anxieties to go with them. These anxieties are seemingly gentler but more long term and therefore the cause of a new fragility within our mindsets and following that, our bodies. Our works only touch on the topic but bring up questions about the stress of social conform that are important to all, whether cave person or high rise executive. We lie somewhere in-between!
