Idle Worship
17 Aug- 13 Oct 2019
Gallery 1

Official Opening: 6pm Friday 16 August

Idle Worship explores contemporary notions of reverence, worship and idolisation. The exhibition, curated by Natalie Bull & Zoë Robinson-Kennedy, focuses on personal manifestations and our need to look beyond the celestial and seek comfort in everyday deities and new-age idols. 

Worship presents itself in many forms. The artists feel it, know it, interpret it, challenge it, give in to it and subvert it. These idols are real and imagined, they come from the past and the future, yet are being made right now, taking their power from the present. 

Featuring artists working across installation, video, performance, sculpture, painting and textiles each artist attends to their private idol with idiosyncratic intent and treats them with a respectful recognition of something perceived to be greater than the self. 

Artists: Jacobus Capone, Consuelo Cavaniglia, Sarah Contos, Mikala Dwyer, Bill Henson, Lindy Lee, Adam Lee, Clare Milledge, Jonny Niesche, Frances Belle Parker, Shireen Taweel, Jodie Whalen and Paul Yore.
