Antidote For Venomous White Snakes Andrew Pearson

- Exhibitions Midsumma Festival

“I challenge poisonous patriarchal concepts through my work.

The purpose of this multi projection audio visual work is to reveal the venomous terminology that proliferates throughout white supremacist patriarchy, and on same sex attracted male ‘hook up’ apps. Language that suggests being ‘white’ is superior slops from the offensive to the absurd, revealing snakes consumed by conformist insecurities and judgments.

While initially disturbing, this work seeks to offer an antidote that soothes with visions of a more inclusive and dignified space; where different is beautiful and celebrated.

This installation invites physical interaction with the projections. The language of ‘superiority’ will be projected on the floor to be trampled on as an act of resistance.”
