an exhibition of works by Caren Florance at the Tuggeranong Arts Centre
6 pm Thursday 4 July 2019
10am–6pm Monday–Friday & 10am–4pm Saturday
Subvert and convert the online hurt
Line Work builds on Florance’s research into online misogyny and trolling. This exhibition uses new and old systems of communication to explore ways to subvert and convert the hurt that we often carry around with us after encountering insults and verbal attacks in person and online.
Abstraction is the main strategy: words morph into webs of lines that simultaneously disconnect and connect. This is unloading, not downloading.
