Presented in partnership with Goulburn Regional Art Gallery, Dean Cross’ Icarus, my Son is a semi-autobiographical exhibition that takes inspiration from the ancient Greek tragedy of Icarus and Daedalus. Throughout the exhibition, Cross examines themes universal to the experience of those in rural and remote communities who seek to expand their horizons. Featuring new video, sculptural and installation work, Icarus, my Son investigates ideas of home, ambition, cataclysm and loss.
