Event Details

Sally Molloy is an artist based in Brisbane/Meanjin, Queensland. Her practice is concerned with locating and critiquing the everyday forms of colonisation that she contributes to and benefits from. Molloy responds to her awareness of living white on unceded Indigenous lands utilising various processes such as collage, painting, installation, soft sculpture, sound work, and video.

In this workshop Sally Molloy will step you through how to use your smart phone as an artistic medium for self-critique. This session will assist both educators and their students the various ways to consider what one can learn from personal experience and how prior knowledge of culture and society influences our systems of decoding visual language. With her naïve aesthetic and a tendency toward the playful, personal, makeshift, and crummy, Molloy and the program participants will challenge the implied hierarchy of media.
