Internationally-acclaimed contemporary Australian artists Julie Gough and Brook Andrew will present their works as part of the forthcoming edition of the Kochi-Muziris Biennale (KMB), curated by Anita Dube.
Julie Gough’s research and art practice involves uncovering and re-presenting subsumed and often conflicting histories, often referring to her own and her family’s experiences as Tasmanian Aboriginal people. Her current work in installation, sound, and video provides the means to explore ephemerality, absence and recurrence, and draws viewers to a closer understanding of people’s continuing roles in, and proximity to, unresolved National stories.
Brook Andrew is an interdisciplinary artist who examines dominant narratives, often relating to colonialism and modernist histories. Through museum and archival interventions and curatorial projects, he aims to make forgotten stories visible and offer alternative choices for interpreting history in the world today. Apart from drawing inspiration from vernacular objects and the archive he travels internationally to work with communities and various private and public collections.
Both their presentations are supported by Australia Council for the Arts.
