The Ballet of Nothing More
Date: 31-Aug-2002 – 22-Sep-2002
Location: Contemporary Art Tasmania
Having recently returned from a residency in China, this exhibition saw Megan Keating develop an installation around the theme of war. Using techniques derived from traditional Chinese paper cut she used an ancient art form to reference contemporary Chinese cultural forms and issues.
This show took place as the build-up to the Iraq war was occurring. This context gave the exhibition a more intense focus and threw the issues it dealt with into sharper focus.
