For the first of the exciting new monthly exhibition program, LOOK celebrates the work of local artists Sophia Cassidy and LizandBetty. Through a convergence of sound and visual, together these artists will debut the program which seeks to create a cooperative space for artists and DJs to expand Meanjin’s creative community and share in a stimulating experience.
Sophia Cassidy is a multidisciplinary artist based in Meanjin. Her practices weaves natural dyes, drawing, paint and textiles to examine how these mediums are modes of fiction. Cassidy employs their application to create contemporary visual narratives which subvert and complicate our understandings of the spatial, temporal and corporeal realms of storytelling.
Lizandbetty aka Wayan Preston and Vissy Hoffie are a collaborative duo. Their work blurs the boundaries of art and design, high and low culture, draws from history and the future to produce images, objects, projects and promises. LOOK being only their second time taking to the decks to a live audience, the duo are breaking their way into spheres of house meets hip hop and every genre in between.
