Are you an artist too?
Friday, May 4 to Saturday, June 2, 2018
Are you an artist too? is an exhibition by Geelongbased artist Amber Stokie. Referencing her own experience of being a triplet, Stokie draws from a personal and unique collective consciousness to explore notions of shared and singular identity.
Utilising performance, photography, drawing, digital collage and installation, Stokie has developed multiple visual languages that are constantly reshaped and reworked to evoke the complexity of relationship dynamics. Abstract and performative depictions of the artist interacting with her seemingly identical sister, powerfully convey experiences of separation,
connectedness and interdependence. These depictions communicate the often fraught journey of identity development, as well as the universal pursuit of individualism.
