Join us for a new lecture performance by Giselle Stanborough, Wwwiderspruch, presented as part of ACE’s current exhibition Metaverse.

We live in a world in which material reality is instantiated through an abstract symbolic network of data, which is then returned to us in ways that are accessible to our senses. Today, it is not only artists that must consider the complexities of abstract ideas embodied in specific material form; the difficulty of mapping the relationship between experience, affect and understanding is the lot of everyone in the ‘Information Age’.

About the artist

Giselle Stanborough is an intermedia artist based on Gadigal land in Sydney. Her works combine online and offline elements to address how user generated media encourage us to identify and perform notions of self, and the relationship between connectivity and isolation. Motivated by a curiosity in the increasing indeterminacy between the private and public spheres, Stanborough’s work often addresses contemporary interpersonal experiences in relation to technology, feminism and consumer capitalism.

Her work has been shown at major venues, such as Australian Centre for Contemporary Art, Melbourne (2017) and Museum of Contemporary Art Australia, Sydney (2017); and including in experimental arts festivals, such as Block Universe, London (2018) and Next Wave Festival, Melbourne (2014). Her work has also been featured in the Washington Post’s Pictures of the Day.

Stanborough’s 2020 solo exhibition, Cinopticon, commissioned by Carriageworks, Sydney, serves as the basis for her latest installation, Labyrinthitis.

Wwwiderspruch is presented as part of Metaverse.
