In the Epoch of the Near and Far
Fri 18 - Sun 27 Sept 2015
Petra Cortright, Keith Deverell, Heath Franco, Aaron Christopher Rees, Marian Tubbs & Emile Zile
Exhibition opening Sat 19 Sept, 6pm.

Six contemporary video artists consider the notion of screen-based life and physical life constantly influencing one another.

Drawing upon Foucault’s theory of heterotopias and, particularly, his mirror analogy, curator Amelia Winata presents In the Epoch of the Near and Far. The exhibition seeks to reframe the dominant attitude that digital media distort reality. It argues, in contrast, for an osmatic model in which screen-based life and physical life regularly influence one another in a back and forth motion.

Identifying an input/gestation/reflection model common to the so-called ‘digital age,’ this exhibition suggests that public and private identities are merging, travelling towards a liminal state.
