Cloaked combat #2, #3

Steaphan Paton

Side Gallery
24 Oct 2014–15 Nov 2014
Opening 12.00am 1 Jan 1970

The series Cloaked Combat is a visual exploration of the material and technological conflicts between cultures, and the roles they play in one culture asserting dominance over another.

A juxtaposition of historical and modern technologies, Cloaked Combat #2 and #3 highlight and uneven match between two warring cultures, and shows the brutality of European invasion/colonisation in Australia.

Steaphan Paton is an interdisciplinary artist based in Melbourne. A member of the Gunai Nation, he grew up in Gippsland. His practice explores tradition, race and colonialism informed through his worldview being Aboriginal Australian. Paton has a keen interest in the environment, archaeology and in continuing Indigenous knowledge, traditions and stories.
