"Site (re) Constructed"
Callum McGrath


Opening: Wednesday 20 July, 6-8pm
Dates: 20 Jul – 6 Aug 2016

Site (re) Constructed is a ongoing project attempting to highlight social constructs of the heterosexual screen in a queer context. Exploring the viewing and perception of the screen where the understanding of real and fantasy are blurred. Through a series of fragmented frame structures and videos the site critiques the influence the screen has as a place of mediated construction. The images are influenced by historical european painting of the Australian landscape and how through manipulation it reconstructed the Australian landscape.

Callum McGrath is an emerging Brisbane artist currently completing his Honours in Visual Art at the Queensland University of Technology. Through video and installation, Callum’s work seeks to transcend the heterosexual and masculine constructs of the screen. In this project the gallery becomes the site of contemplation, weaving personal history and narrative with research into theories on the social construction of identity, postmodernism and systems of language. The work attempts to articulate the relationship that queer gender identity has with the heteronormative screen as a mode of social construction.

This exhibition is supported by MAAP Media Bank.
