JUSTINE KHAMARA’s works are currently showing in Seoul at POSCO Art Museum, in the touring group exhibition VERTIGO: chaos and dislocation in contemporary Australian art, organized by Asialink and BLINDSIDE. The exhibition runs from 23 July to 27 August at POSCO Art Museum. Artists alongside Justine Khamara include Boe-lin Bastian, Cate Consandine, Simon Finn, Bonnie Lane, Kristin McIver, Kiron Robinson, Tania Smith, Kate Shaw and Alice Wormald.
"The artists interrogate contemporary life, exploring the fracture, chaos and dislocation that arises in the human condition and in a world which is imbued with flux and change. The experience of dizziness and a loss of perspective are explored within a world that is gripped by an acceleration of time and pace.
Presenting sculptural works, painting, neon, collage, drawing and video, the artists disrupt the ordinariness that can pervade life, building new narratives of human experience. By conveying feelings of anxiety and humour, or by using absurd gestures, the artists in Vertigo attempt to make sense of the world around them, with dizzying effects."
