Kudos in collaboration with Cement Fondu presents Unearthing x Kudos, an online exhibition of digital works by UNSW students and recent graduates, in response to the work of Atong Atem. Featuring videos, sound, text, recorded and digital performances & more, this collection, curated by Siann Boustead features works by Becky Heaton, Billy Wolnicki, Félixe Rives, Gabrielle Chantiri, Geirthana, Niko Plaskas, Nolan Ho Wung Murphy, and Yanti Peng.
Collectively the artists, following Atem’s work, draw on themes across self-portraiture, self-expression, poetics and diasporic experience. Confronting selfhoods and personal identities in the context of our current turbulent epoch, these artists expose their desires for the future.
Available on the Cement Fondu website from October 14 – October 23, this digital presentation moves us towards a shared cathartic Unearthing.
