Opening Night Tuesday 29 April 2014, 5 - 7 PM
Through film, voice, text and poetic materiality, Virginia Mawer investigates how the unravelling of language can affect our experience of the world.
Gaining or losing language is often destabilising because of the shifting grounds of meaning, yet its transformative nature also plays a role in creating new facets ofourselvesor regenerating dormant parts. Translated as 'memory everlasting',vičnajapamjat is a traditional funeral chorus that in this exhibition acts not only as a reminder of lost ancestors, but also distant homes and forgotten languages.
This exhibition is a body of works made during her Master of Fine Arts.
