Stockroom presents Poked by a bone in a cupboard, a group exhibition of video works, curated by artist SIYING ZHOU and featuring BRIDGET GRIFFITHS, KA-YIN KWOK, LOU HUBBARD, PIA JOHNSON, SANJA PAHOKI, Min MIN WONG and SIYING ZHOU. These works, from seven Australian artists who vary in art practices, career status, and socio-cultural upbringing. explore family, immigration and relationships. In their respective careers, the artists have been independently drawn to explore family relationships in video work. Poked by a bone in a cupboard brings these videos together, showing diverse family portraits through a range of video narrations. This exhibition intends to offer a space where the relationship between parents and their children are perceived and contemplated through video medium and an art means.
The conceptual initiation of this exhibition comes from SIYING ZHOU’s relationship with her parents. After living apart from her parents for almost a decade, ZHOU experienced a growing detachment from her parents. ZHOU’s parents moved to Australia in 2014 following their retirement. Through making videos of her parents, ZHOU noticed an improvement in her relationship with them. This led ZHOU to wonder: is this experience unique to a family of immigrants? What kind of relationships do her friends have with their families? With this inquiry, she began her search, among her peers, for video works on families. This exhibition is a result of this questions: how may video-making be used by children understand their parents and themselves? How may this process be used to examine the psychological attachment between parents and their children and to gain emotional support from social community outside the family?
