Description

Performance Event: Bodies of Conflict

Cancer is an experience of primal conflict; the mind must accept destructive treatments that both threaten its survival and provide a chance of ongoing life. The result is the creation of a psychological space where death, fear, loss and longing co-exist with wonder, mysticism, hope, transcendence, alchemy and love.

In ‘Bodies of Conflict’, Camperdown artist Kate Gane presents a new body of work that respond to her experiences of facing and healing from breast cancer.

While undergoing cancer treatment, Kate’s mother gifted her four terrariums: each a microcosm of life that continued to grow even while Kate felt her weakest and most vulnerable. ‘Bodies of Conflict’ presents these terrariums in an immersive installation set against footage of an echocardiogram (an ‘echo’ scan) of Kate’s heart taken when she was first diagnosed with cancer.

Performances

During the exhibition, Kate will be activating the installation by inviting members of the public to sit and present for a sensory performance artwork held in the exhibition space. The performances are free to attend, however spaces are strictly limited to 10 people per session. Book in advance to secure your place.

Bodies of Conflict performances will be held between 4:00 – 4:30 each Thursday throughout the exhibition:

  • 3rd August
  • 10th August
  • 17th August
  • 24th August
  • 31th August
