Abstract

The Multifarious Identity comprised several installation works each occupying
physically discrete spaces within the Watt Space Gallery (2006). The works -
Simulacra: Everyday Alone in Perspex; Prurience: Obfuscation and Immersion;
Recidivism: Mens Rea, Actus Reus; Confabulation: Multifarious Identity - explored the gendered,
sexualized, Aboriginal body of the artist.

The audience follows an investigation of the intersections that comprise a singular, yet mmultifarious identity. A recurrent image of the genitals act as a constant representation of the artist. It is present, yet replaced within each work as other elements of the body of the artist become available to the audience. Narrative soundscape too acts as a binding agent. Sound is discreetly managed within each space, yet the overheard sounds bleed across galleries to inform the audience of the connection and conflation of these individual identity markers unified in the din of multiple soundscapes.
