Life@Death 2017

Night-at-New-Norcia-dieter-englerThe 5th annual Life@Death Exhibition presented by Gallery One and Uniting Church Mitcham opened with a performance by actor-in-residence Marko Siklich.

This year’s theme, ‘The Sleep of Reason’ asked the question, ‘is there a crisis of reason for us in the western world at the beginning of the 21st Century? The great Western contract with Reason was that we trusted it to bring understanding and  therefore enhance life and living. Has Reason delivered? Can we trust it to bring all that it has for so long promised? Has Reason been put to work towards the wrong reasons? Has Reason kept the monsters at bay or has it produced its own monsters?’ text by Dieter Engler
