Conflated

Exhibition and Shows

29 Sep 2022 to 4 Nov 2022 Once Only Event

When we inhale and exhale, our bodies transform through the process of inflation and deflation. Drawing on the inflatable form as both material and metaphor, Conflated brings disparate artists together to explore bodies, environments and cultures through contemporary art. Here, the cycle of breathing serves as a framework through which a wide array of experiences, behaviours and expressions are examined.

The artists featured in Conflated investigate the possibilities of the inflatable through participatory works that entice audiences into finding new forms of Covid-safe intimacy, audio that draws parallels between ASMR breath and the ecological destruction of glaciers melting, and video of convulsing bodies that morph with inflatable objects. Across all works, the idea of inflation and deflation is a provocation, offering new possibilities in and for our world.

Featured artists include Zoe Bastin, Andy Butler, David Cross, Bronwyn Hack, Amrita Hepi with Honey Long and Prue Stent, Christopher Langton, Eugenia Lim, James Nguyen and Steven Rhall.

Conflated is a NETS Victoria touring exhibition co-curated by Zoe Bastin and Claire Watson.

This project has been assisted by the Australian Government’s Visions of Australia program and the Victorian Government through Creative Victoria.
