anti-aria for ater-

This exhibition is the final instalment in a three-part series of exhibition reading rooms by artist Abbra Kotlarczyk that are centred around genealogy, familial history, material and elemental kinships, and queer modes of reading and resistance. anti-aria for ater- draws from, while also representing an operatic break with the paternal line of its previous two iterations. The exhibition centres feminist and autobiographical psychogeographies of fire as they intersect with the history and architecture of the gallery’s incinerator, known colloquially as ‘The Destructor’. The exhibition title draws on the etymology of the root word ‘ater’ meaning fire (blackened by) and ‘aria’ meaning air (a melody for a single voice).
