BLINDSIDE 2018 EMERGING CURATOR MENTORSHIP
Helen Grogan, Christopher Boots, Shannon May Powell, Honey Long, Prue Stent, Kathleen Campone-Burn, Isabella Whawhai Mason
Anticipation is Half of the Seduction is an exhibition that considers the heightened states of being that exist between sites of release and resistance. Whether it be found in the tension between consenting bodies or the impact of colliding objects, the dynamic movement that exists between the attraction and repulsion of energy is everywhere. Considered through artworks that both document and demonstrate through choreography, photography, sculpture and light, Anticipation is Half of the Seduction examines the uncontrollable forces of our emotions and nature.
