Robert Mercer: Finding Place

13th November - 11th December

Woolloongabba Art Gallery

Through the process of reshaping and re-evaluating a collection of photographic imagery from 1988 to 2021, I have attempted to negotiate a place and cultural identity of a diasporic person: a person who has moved between people, cultures and landscapes. It is the allegorical nature of reading a text through another that is a central aspect of my art practice.
In the conclusions of his study ‘Origin of the German Trauerspiel (Tragic Drama)’, Walter Benjamin remarked, “to hold its own against the tendency to absorption, the allegorical must constantly unfold in new and surprising ways.” ― Robert Mercer
Opening Event: Saturday afternoon, 13 November from 3pm
(Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander viewers are advised that the catalogue and exhibition may contain images of people who have died.)
