Amy Sargeant takes over CONTRA with a striking installation not to be missed.
Meanjin (Brisbane) based protest artist Amy Sargeant returns for a new collaboration with independent fashion boutique CONTRA.
The collaboration comprises a large-scale art installation at the CONTRA venue, and an immersive live sound performance at the opening event on Friday 7th May, 2021.
Through sculpture, audio and video installations, Amy’s work responds to her disillusionment with the dysfunctions of the Australian political establishment by re-framing the elements of political spectacle. Amy deploys the Situationist method of détournement to destabilise motifs from mainstream politics, activist iconography, symbols and visual cultures.
