Project Description

UPCOMING EXHIBITION AT METRO ART | crosseXions

SGAR artists CAMILLE SERISIER, JAMES BARTH and DANA LAWRIE will be featured in Metro Art’s upcoming exhibition crosseXions. Curated by Beth Jackson the exhibition navigates contemporary dialogues of feminism and the environment.

Camille Serisier will present Venus of Brisbane, a body of work consisting of drawings, costumes, and photographs. A theory surrounds the Venus of Willendorf that the statuette of a woman and similar archaeological finds are the result of female self-portraiture during pregnancy. Developing from a series of drawings made during her second and third trimester, Venus of Brisbane is based on Serisier’s personal experience of pregnancy.

James Barth’s virtual self-portrait for Crossextions reflects on gender identity, challenging the monolithic, techno-centric and symbolic burden we force on the transsexual body. Through the work Barth dissects the misrepresentations of the feminine body in technology such as animations and fashion.

The exhibitions features new work by 12 Queensland artists: James Barth, Clark Beaumont (Sarah Clark & Nicole Beaumont), Katina Davidson, Dana Lawrie, Julie-Anne Milinski, Clare Poppi, Merri Randell, Leena Riethmuller, Camille Serisier, Lynden Stone and Shayna Wells.
