"JASON KEATS: white-wash / black leather shine"
2000-11-30 until 2000-12-20
Experimental Art Foundation
Jason Keats's performance-installation explores genealogy and the possibilities for re-writing individual and social histories. This major work by Keats incorporates installation, sound, performance and text/book works.
A central element of this work are the journals of Keats's grandmother Dorothy Mabel Crisp, written during her voyage to Australia from England in 1957. The content of the journals is refigured as a sign of connection and distance, through sound, text and performance.
Jason Keats has just completed a Masters Degree in Performance Studies at Victoria University of Technology, Melbourne. He recently presented performance works at the Melbourne Cricket Ground, and Whitten Oval.
A catalogue is available with texts by: Ann Marsh, Mark Minchinton, Esther Pierini and Chris Chapman.
