Opening night - Wednesday the 7th of September 6 - 9pm
We live in a culture where the perpetuation of family ancestral lineage and the family as a social institution are central.
By making babies, we continue life's pageant. In children, we cheat death. Yet something seems fundamentally very wrong, or incomplete, with this idea as humans.
But to find meaning only in child production seems an affront to human dignity and potential, individual differences, and personal choice.
Questions posed by this exhibition are:
Are we aspiring for life after death or immortality through the perpetuation of the lineage?
Are we procreating so that we can live out our unlived lives through our children under the guise of giving children a better life?
Does making babies provide the answer to life after death?
Exhibition dates : Thursday the 8th to Tuesday the 20th of September
