Empathetic Gestures II Exhibition Opening

Come along to The Block this week for the opening of Empathetic Gestures II by School of Creative Practice PhD student Genine Larin.

Empathic Gestures II is the second creative iteration from a transdisciplinary practice-led PhD project that considers knowledge and practice from across visual art, dance practices and psychoanalysis. The creative work is an exploration of inner experience through affect, a kind of knowing that is present within. It is the driving force in my making process — emerging from the unconscious with a gasp or an uncontrolled gesture.
