16th February – 3rd March
Seven Situations is a series of performance-based video works that take as a starting point the role of the trickster in mythology, folklore and popular culture. Using the body as an instrument these public interventions, performed around Melbourne’s inner suburbs, range from the subtle to the bizarre. By exploring the potential in any given moment and playing upon the form of the everyday, these actions subvert standard social practices and parody normal behaviour. Chosen for their humour and absurdity as well as their historical and cultural references, they playfully disrupt and interrogate everyday situations.
