5 - 22 April
Join us for the exhibition opening at 5.30pm, Friday 5 April.
“How do we find genuine connection, healing and love in a system designed to commodify even the workings of the heart?” asks artist, writer and filmmaker Emma Magenta.
Emma attempts to answer this question in her exhibition, Love in the Time of Capitalism. This collection of works and writing deal with the struggles and victories of the heart in an era where human misery is exploited for profit.
“I am interested in the fracturing of the human psyche, such as with our masculine and feminine selves, and how this translates into the selling of idealistic romance to trap the human heart into a cycle of disillusionment,” says Emma.
"This exhibition is the culmination of the writings, artworks and investigations I created for my ABC-funded film, Remembering Agatha. Love in the Time of Capitalism is piecing the fragments into a whole.”
The artworks are generally created on up-cycled materials such as beer boxes, shopping bags, and government penalty notices. It features printed personalised panic attack bags, as well as screenings of Emma’s film, Remembering Agatha.
Join us for the opening as we bring together Emma’s profound and beautiful writings, artworks and film for the first time in the Blue Mountains.
We look forward to seeing you here.
