Lost World - Julie Gough
Until Sunday 18 June 2017
In a nutshell
Video installation by Tasmanian artist Julie Gough exploring the absence of objects from their original people and place.
This solo exhibition by Julie Gough features her 2013 installation ‘The Lost World’, a film showing the artist crossing Tasmania. This project explores the absence of objects from their original people and place, highlighting the colonial misnomers that articulate the continued dispossession of Aboriginal people from their lands.
What to Expect
Julie Gough is an artist, independent curator and writer who lives in Hobart, Tasmania. Her research and art practice often involves uncovering and re-presenting often conflicting and subsumed histories, many referring to her family’s experiences as Tasmanian Aboriginal people. Current work in installation, sound and video provides the means to explore ephemerality, absence and recurrence.
What people are saying
'Julie makes her work with such conviction and that is what makes her and her art so compelling. Her works have integrity and they are sublimely beautiful.' Australian curator Hetti Perkins
Why does Rich Mix matter?
'Rich Mix provides the perfect setting to welcome this world-class artist into the heart of London’s cultural life.'
