⬤ Lili Reynaud-Dewar, TEETH, GUMS, MACHINES, FUTURE, SOCIETY, 5 Oct - 11 Dec 2018 ⬤ Alicia Frankovich, Exoplanets, 5 Oct - 11 Dec 2018
The paired exhibitions currently on show at the Monash University Museum of Art (MUMA) are linked by the figure of the prosthetically enhanced, composite or permeable body. Alicia Frankovich's Exoplanets, 2018, and Lili Reynaud-Dewar's Teeth Gums Machines Future Society, 2016-18, both explore territory that can be described as post-humanist feminism. It's an interesting and curatorially astute pairing, not only because of the similarities in the two artists' interests but also because of the apparent difference in the politics of the two bodies of work.
