Vein Cage : A Praxis of Existence and Identity
Vein Cage : A Praxis of Existence and Identity, is a Group Exhibition showcasing the diversity and strength of Artists, Musicians, and Performers working within the experimental, underground, and emerging scenes in Meanjin. Through the use of a multitude of mediums, such as sculpture, installation, paintings, mixed-media, and live sound performances, the artists create a multi-sensory, intimate experience.
The artists explore an array of concepts surrounding themes of Queer Identity, Gender, Culture, Conscious Observation, and Wilful Disruption. This collection of work is relevant to current social and political themes of existentialism and the deconstruction of the human experience, and opens up a conversation of vulnerability, individuality, resilience, and presence.
The title ‘VEIN CAGE’ refers to our mortal bodies, in which we are currently trapped, the praxis of exploring existence, and identity is approached throughout our creative processes, and expressions.
