The Lock Up presents KNOWN | UNKNOWN, a selection of contemporary Australian artists who work directly with their own bodies as a key component of their creative practice.
Through movement, dance, choreography, song, performance practice, costuming, video, and virtual reality, the exhibiting artists’ utilise their own bodies, and sometimes those of others, to explore notions of personal, cultural and social identity. The body becomes a site for questioning, understanding, integration and polarity; the known and the unknown.
Curated by Jessi England, KNOWN | UNKNOWN features artists Bleck, Toby Cedar, Rakini Devi, John A. Douglas, Amala Groom and Amrita Hepi.
Exhibition Opens: 5:30-7:30pm Saturday 6 April 2019
