Visual Arts | SOUTH AUSTRALIA + VICTORIA
DAMIEN SHEN + ROBERT HAGUE
This collaboration sets out to scrutinise the often cruel and indifferent methodology of science in the context of race through an autobiographical lens and will be presented as a faux anthropological study reminiscent of the 19th century collection of indigenous people.
A look at how science failed to describe much of what mattered. Shen and Hague are both artists, fathers, husbands and brothers but share little in their DNA or geographical and cultural backgrounds. They are about as different as you can get: one a South Australian man of Ngarrindjeri and Chinese bloodlines, the other
a New Zealand migrant born from Irish and English stock.
