Friday 2 to Saturday 17 September
Artists’ Talks: Saturday 17 September from 3pm
Mog&Mog are multi-disciplinary artists Alexandra Edmondson and Kate Fennell. As a creative partnership encompassing art, design, writing and film-making, they are interested in exploring perceptions of self and marginality of identity.
In creating Future self the artists Mog&Mog have embarked on a nostalgic exploration of their childhoods growing up in 1980s and 1990s Australia. In looking for clues, patterns and connections pointing to who they would become, they have compiled a personal narrative through a pastiche of pop culture references. The result is a work that is both personal and public and explores the role pop culture plays in shaping the individual by showing us who we are.
Future self is as much an exploration of personal narrative as it is a tribute to storytelling itself.
