Description

A Consumer's Guide to Unobtainable Happiness: Susan Gourley
Floor Talk and Morning Tea

10am Saturday 13 October 2018
RAG, Capalaba

Susan Gourley aims to destabilise the consumerist impulse through paradox, mimicry and repetition. In A Consumer’s Guide to Unobtainable Happiness Gourley uses waste materials to reproduce the textural qualities of faux tableaux French inspired patisseries, both mimicking and questioning a culture built on mass consumption.
