09 Apr Derek Sargent: WISH I COULD BE YOU
April 6th until May 4th. 2014
Opening Sunday the 6th April at 6pm
Derek Sargent is a sculpture and installation artist based in Adelaide. His work is concerned with the development of identity and sexuality in the formative years of adolescence. He explores the extent to which heteronormative culture enforces and oppresses imagery and thought. Focusing on how popular culture reinforces standard gender and sexual roles, Sargent subverts theses heteronormative structures by privileging queer imagery over the normative and by reinterpreting object and spaces to reflect the queer adolescent experience.
