THE AUSTRALIAN UGLINESS
Plot produced Eugenia Lim’s multi-channel installation, which explores contemporary Australian identity through architecture. The Australian Ugliness considers architecture’s role in shaping culture and cultural diversity. The work seeks to challenge existing tropes and stereotypes of national identity by representing a female, performative, Asian and artistic perspective of Australian architecture, culture and identity. TAU will be presented in partnership with Melbourne School of Design and Open House Melbourne as a keynote event alongside a free public program of talks, an architectural walking tour, a print publication and an interactive online presence that will extend the reach to the broadest possible audience.
