Exhibition: Görkem Acaroğlu 'Immuno-bordercology'

Next date: Friday, 24 March 2023 | 10:00 PM to Sunday, 26 March 2023 | 04:00 PM

Gorkem Acaroglu Immuno-bordercology

Thursday 9 March at 6.30pm - 8.30pm.
All welcome, free event - RSVP required.

This exhibition will feature a body of work by Turkish Australian artist Görkem Acaroğlu that explores the immune system as a boundary between determination of self and other, engaging with Donna Haraway's description of the immune system as "an elaborate icon for principal systems of symbolic and material 'difference' in late capitalism".

The exhibition features 20 oil on canvas paintings that have been created by reading the grounds of Turkish coffee cups during lockdown, painting the images that emerge.

The exhibition features sound design by Kirri Buchler.

A percentage of proceeds of sold works will go to earthquake victims in Turkey through an accredited charity.
