Family culture and connections has always been an underlying aspect of their practices, but this will be the first time they engage with this personal narrative directly.

INFORMATION

A Collaborative Exhibition by Ruby Berry & Makan Moon

I’d Like to Know you Better is a vulnerable and weighted cross discipline exhibition with works formed through an intimate creative process using different techniques of making to explore connection to themes, family members (both past and present) and self. Ruby Berry and Makan Moon are both individually seeking an exploration, expression and engagement with their family culture. Family culture and connections has always been an underlying aspect of their practices, but this will be the first time they engage with this personal narrative directly.  

 

This exhibition will be an attempt to explore weighted family narratives through expression, sharing and by offering up apart of the artist shaped by others to her family, the audience and the artist.This will lead into broader questions around why we each move our bodies the way we do, what forms our individual and collective reactions to the interpretations of experiences.

...
