Athene Currie 'Meconnaissance: New Rites of Passage'


  • POP Gallery 27 Logan Road Woolloongabba, QLD, 4102 Australia (map)

These performative videos act as a rite of passage, the desire to find the true or whole self in the transformation through midlife.

Jacques Lacan used the term méconnaissance to designate an imaginary misrecognition, reflecting ones mistaken identity.

This transition through midlife where self is thrown into question, can be described as a time of reflection, to remove masque or identities we have assumed and undergo transformation towards coming times.

Opening Event: Thursday, 4 August 2016, 6 – 8 pm

Gallery Hours: Wednesday to Sunday, 10am-4pm, Thursday, 12pm-8pm
