- When 22 Nov 2018 - 23 Jan 2019
101/113-115 WILLIAM ST, DARLINGHURST NSW 2010
Object Space is a window gallery located on William Street in Darlinghurst. On display 22 November 2018 - 23 January 2019 is the exhibition Site/Insight by artist Dennis Golding.
Driven from childhood memories and interests in superhero comic books, Dennis' capes represent figures of place and country and inform identity through lived experiences and history.
Dennis demonstrates his research practice with this new cape that he has marked with a cultural motif that references country and frames it within an image of trees along the shores of Botany Bay, NSW. Being a place that holds significance to European settlement, the featured cape is confronted with the trees which hold stories of precolonial stories. Dennis intends the viewer to see what the cape is seeing as an approach to decolonise histories and unveil truths and hidden narratives of Aboriginal people and culture.
This Object Space exhibition is an adjunct exhibition to Designing Bright Futures 2018, presented in partnership with UNSW Art and Design.
