Chantal Fraser: To be Poly Penitent

WHEN : 23rd May - 3rd July
WHERE : Artisan

To be Poly Penitent is an installation by Brisbane-based artist Chantal Fraser that considers the ritual of penance through the presentation of an ifoga ceremony (a Samoan ritual of public humiliation, forgiveness and exchange). Through this work Fraser asks us to consider our artistic, social and cultural penance in an attempt to highlight contradictory social and political symbolic appropriation.
