Shana Moulton X Min Wong Artist Talk2 September 2022
Highlighting the absurdity of our increasingly commodified bids for happier realities and more peaceful minds, Shana Moulton (US) and Min Wong (AUS) come together for an online artist talk to discuss our 4th international artist pairing Soul Seeker: Shana Moulton X Min Wong.
Shana Moulton is a New York based artist using video, sculptural installation and performance to evoke a sometimes claustrophobic domestic world inhabited by her alter ego Cynthia, who suffers from hypochondria and agoraphobia. Through Cynthia’s interactions with new age paraphernalia and animated encounters within her home and natural surroundings, Moulton paints a picture of a woman both trapped and comforted by the walls of domesticity; confined by phobias and anxieties yet freed through escapes from reality.
Min Wong is a Sydney based artist, for Soul Seeker she has been commissioned by Cement Fondu to present a major new installation, Lone Wolf, 2022, which explores contemporary metaphysical narratives, esoteric practices, ritual and the relationship of spiritual guru and seeker. Wong’s work is informed by her personal search for meaning through spirituality and fitness practices, and reflects diverse influences and lived experiences including Evangelistic Christianity in childhood and her Chinese father’s ritualistic practices as a Taoist.
