From an urban Chinese experience, we tend not to display emotions because that suggests vulnerability and even weakness. Disregarding how many years that we lives in a Western countries, this characteristic still stay with us. Although we moved to Australia and were under the Western cultural influence , to what extent we still carry with our cultural characteristic ? 

I enlisted acquaintances and agreeable strangers of Chinese cultural background as models. They moved to Australia from aged 4 years old to mid 40's . I staged these by arranging for each model individually to sit still for 1.5-3 hrs —the golden hour—during which they were shown a movie related to Hong Kong/ Chinese cultural issue or history. The overlaid long exposures traced their facial expressions and their shifts of position, recording their comfort and discomfort, their absorption and their impatience, their range of emotional responses.

Exhibition Date : 2 Sept - 12 Nov 2017

Venue : Tarrawarra Museum of Art

curated by Victoria Lynn

All that is solid… is the third exhibition in the TarraWarra International series, designed to showcase leading contemporary art practice in a global context. The Australian and international artists in this exhibition depict precarious histories, and their art offers imaginative responses. Many of them use the format of the archival fragment as a starting point for their work – a photograph or video from days gone by. Others depict the current social changes, turbulent conflicts, and altered political landscapes with a new imaginative filter.

The artists in this year’s TarraWarra International are Didem Erk (Turkey); Cao Fei (China); Tom Nicholson (Australia); Patrick Pound (Australia); and Cyrus Tang (Australia).
