It's Not the End of the World

Working with sculpture and performance, Lauren Brincat constructs situations into which the audience is invited to share her experience of everyday life's spectrum of major and minor engagements. Brincat's exhibition is influenced by her time spent working in Mexico, where according to much-misrepresented Mayan belief, the world was predicted to end on December 21, 2012. A painted placard bearing the title of the exhibition stands as provisional testament to the world's survival, and on a less cataclysmic scale, a common response to things not happening as planned. Reflecting the artist's own personal expectations, ambitions, and disappointments,the exhibition invites viewers to contemplate being welcomed but unwanted, accepted and empowered through their encounters with Brincat's feats.
