ANTIDOTE FOR VENOMOUS WHITE SNAKES

Andrew J Pearson @ Midsumma Melbourne

19th April / 3rd May. Gasworks Arts Park. 21 Graham St, Albert Park VIC 3206

I challenge poisonous patriarchal concepts through my work. 

The purpose of this multi projection audio visual work is to reveal the venomous terminology that proliferates throughout white supremacist patriarchy on same sex attracted (male) ‘hook up’ apps

Language suggesting that being ‘white’ is superior slops from the offensive to the absurd, revealing snakes consumed by conformist insecurities and judgments. 

While initially disturbing, this work seeks to offer an antidote that enraptures with visions of a more inclusive and dignified space where different is beautiful and celebrated.  The language of ‘superiority’ will be projected on the floor, to be trampled on as an act of resistance. Documentation available on Vimeo soon.
