What is experimental today when 'performance art’ is undergoing a renaissance around the world? What we are seeing today is a new investigation into ephemeral art that is challenging the assumptions of an older generation.
Stages was a collaborative exhibition by Melbourne-based artists, Clare Rae and Simone Hine. Both artists follow in the tradition of feminist art practices, using their own body to examine broader ideas related to the conditions of feminine representation. This is coupled with an interest in the relationship between stillness and motion as it relates to the medium of photography and moving images.
