Attention seeker
Group Exhibition La Trobe Art Institute, Bendigo, Australia
Date: 03.29, 2022 - 07.03, 2022

Artists: Melati SURYODARMO 麦拉蒂·苏若道默 | 

An exhibition that explores the image of the idealised performer getting it ‘right’ and the way a performer connects with an audience through practice, repetition and authenticity.

Artists: Colleen Ahern, Rebecca Baumann, Priyageetha Dia, Eng Kai Er, Lou Hubbard, Michelle Mantsio, Melati Suryodarmo
Guest curator: Amita Kirpalani

Attention seeker explores how visual artists take inspiration from the choreography, artifice and charisma of iconic performances by musicians and actors. Through painting, sculpture and video works by seven international and Australian artists, the exhibition examines performances as planned events that can come unstuck or deviate from the rehearsal. It looks at performers caught in the act or between the lines and reveals unpredictable staging, unruly costumes, slips of the tongue or actual slips.

This exhibition has been developed to complement Bendigo Art Gallery’s exhibition, Elvis: Direct from Graceland (19 March to 17 July). Where Elvis examines a singular iconic performer, Attention seeker brings together works that unpack the risk, structure and release of a performer standing in front of a real or imagined audience.
