Last Days: The Uncovering

Artist: Jacqueline Larcombe

Last Days - The Uncovering

In cosy apocalypse theory the end is somehow manageable and we still exist. This exhibition explores the end as romantic and dramatic in its finality. As a future world becomes increasingly difficult to imagine so too does a fixation with The End. Portrayals of economic, social, and environmental collapse are much in vogue, played out in post-apocalyptic themed entertainments. Step into the last days, an uncovering. Theatre props and cinema become tropes for an imagined future space held between existing and not existing. There is a morbid comfort in surrendering to the end of all things; self-autonomy is removed and replaced with an infantile submission and resignation to the doomed world, a wilful letting go of agency and responsibility.

This exhibition is an outcome of the artist’s time spent at the Winter Dawn Residency at Dawn Fraser Baths, which is an initiative of Inner West Council.
