Helen Cammock @ Kate Macgarry
10 September 2020 - 17 October 2020
Helen Cammock explores social histories through film, photography, print, text, song and performance. She is motivated by her commitment to questioning mainstream historical narratives around blackness, womanhood, wealth, power, poverty and vulnerability. Mining her own biography in addition to the histories of oppression and resistance, multiple and layered narratives reveal the cyclical construct of histories.
The exhibition features Cammock’s new film They Call It Idlewild. The work acts as a reflection on the politics of idleness and what it means creatively, emotionally and culturally to be idle at a time when questions are being asked more widely about the physical and emotional costs of hyperproductivity required by neoliberalism.
