Echo Chambers: Art and Endless Reflections
This ambitious exhibition brings together contemporary Australian artists who are working with mirrors, mirrored surfaces and reflections as the subject and materials of their work, transforming three separate gallery spaces across Deakin University, into a series of dizzying spatial encounters. Artists include Chris Bond, Leslie Eastman, Yanni Florence, Carlo Golin, Justine Khamara, Gian Manik, Kent Morris, Nike Savvas, Linda Tegg, Ebony Truscott, Lyndal Walker and Meng-Yu Yan and others. This project seeks to engage with audience’s increasing desire to see images of themselves reflected in exhibitions and explores how contemporary culture and social media, often mirrors, duplicates and doubles itself. Key historical examples will frame the exhibition inviting the viewer to speculate on what they see and how our experiences of representation have changed over time.
