Confessions

Date: 07-Jun-2019 – 14-Jul-2019

Location: Contemporary Art Tasmania // A FREE EVENT

OPENING: 6pm, Thursday 6 June 2019

The artist will be present to take confessions daily from 7 June – 14 June, 2pm – 4pm. 

The exhibition will be open 12 – 5pm daily during Dark Mofo, then 12 – 5pm Wednesdays – Sundays until Sunday 14 July.

Confessions, Tony Albert’s solo presentation during Dark Mofo, represents the Girramay/Kuka Yalanji artist’s first engagement with the idea of performance and is a starting point from which to examine the potentialities of non-verbal communication.

This exhibition presents new commissions and iconic works from the last ten years. The installation includes a confession-style booth within which Albert engages non-verbally with one member of the public at a time. Via a single sheet of paper, the artist and participant exchange hand-drawn marks in a form of abstract conversation. The unique experience between artist and visitor will result in an artwork made in collaboration. Confessions explores the artist’s experience of growing up within the Catholic Church and living with the contemporary legacies of colonialism.
This exhibition is presented with DARK MOFO 2019.
