Persona, Off The Kerb, Collingwood

Exhibition Statement

The theory of “persona” coined by Carl Jung examines discrepancies between our public and private personalities. This theme has featured repeatedly throughout my favourite films: Ingmar Bergman’s “Persona”, David Lynch’s “Mulholland Drive", “Fight Club” by David Fincher and also Reg Cribb’s riveting play “The Haunting of Daniel Gartrell”. It is also poignantly evident in the on-stage versus private lives of the performers I’ve met through Melbourne’s vibrant life-drawing community at Dr Sketchy’s Anti-Art School and Gay Life Drawing. “Persona” strips these local performers of their outlandish, vibrant and powerful on-stage characters, and examines who they are when the costumes are removed, the props set aside and the lights are down.
