Lynne Barwick & India Zegan
November 16 – December 1, 2013
497 Parramatta Road, Leichhardt, NSW 2040
India Zegan and Lynne Barwick’s work is linked by a shared interest in cultural narratives of identity, in the blurred ground of fiction and autobiography, and in disrupting empirical language to reveal its surrounding ghosts. In a furthering of the artists’ discussions, Zegan’s abstracted portraits and Barwick’s painted text, reflect and engage each other in an open-ended conversation.
Lynne Barwick’s text pieces incorporate literary techniques and genres to examine the uses of language in contemporary art. Barwick’s installation forCloser presents a series of propositions and declarations that examine the narratives that underpin ideas of community and evolution.
