The Ballet of Nothing More

Meg Keating

LOCATION: CONTEMPORARY ART TASMANIA GALLERY

Having recently returned from a residency in China, this exhibition saw Megan Keating develop an installation around the theme of war. Using techniques derived from traditional Chinese paper cut she used an ancient art form to reference contemporary Chinese cultural forms and issues. 

This show took place as the build-up to the Iraq war was occurring. This context gave the exhibition a more intense focus and threw the issues it dealt with into sharper focus.
