Chantal Fraser’s upcoming exhibition #traditional #blurredlines, features a series of highly adorned headdresses that navigate symbols of tribal culture through a contemporary lens. Fraser investigates the aesthetics and symbols of traditional tribal irony, using personal possessions that are closely associated with modern life in the creation of each headpiece. The exhibition addresses how tribal aesthetics and masks are reappropriated and labelled in various contexts such as fashion, popular culture, religion, militia and in contemporary media outlets.

Born in Auckland, New Zealand, Chantal Fraser is a Brisbane based multi-media artist with a BFA (Honours) from Queensland University of Technology. Fraser’s practice engages in pushing the boundaries of adornment through mediums such as installation, performance and digital media. Fraser has exhibited nationally at various institutions such as QUT Art Museum, University of Queensland Art Museum and Brisbane City Hall (now Museum of Brisbane). Fraser has also been included in exhibitions internationally at institutions such as La Cité internationale des Arts, Paris, Les Brassieres in Belgium and Tjibaou Cultural Centre, New Caledonia.
