Unsettling Suite by Sarah-Jane Norman, takes us into a dreamlike house, with translucent walls and an eerie interior glow. Each room plays host to an individual installation and performance, investigating the legacies of colonialism and their resonance through history into the present. Through works that are both beguiling and disturbing, Unsettling Suite explores the ways that Australia’s history of colonisation plays out on the body, and permeates the sphere of the personal. Norman is an artist of British and Aboriginal descent, and Unsettling Suite is a powerfully personal work that speaks to broader historical truths about who we have been, and who we are. Presented by Carriageworks and Performance Space.
