Exhibition text by LOUISE MARTIN CHEW

MEAT MIRROR is a performance activated multimedia installation that interweaves questions about the normalisation of cosmetic surgery with notions of the ‘space of appearance’ in the real and digital public spheres. The exhibition critically addresses the alarming normalisation of surgical enhancement via a multimedia aquatic installation punctuated by programmed performances. Wrapped in the Suburban Gothic’s paradoxical sugarcoated grotesque, Meat Mirror poetically juxtaposes natural against digital worlds as well as butchery against beauty and mixes Orwellian satire, MGM aquamusicals, and Schlock Horror genres.


MEAT MIRROR is supported by the Queensland State Government through Arts Queensland, Mappin’s Nursery, Urban Art Projects, MakMax, Queensland College of Art Griffith University, TAFE Queensland/Canberra University, Shane Thompson Architects, Pro-Nel Lighting, Anywhere Festival, and Brisbane Art Design (BAD).
