Next Wave Festival: Something Less by Alasdair Doyle and Liam James

Posted by Meat Market

13 - 22 May

Tues to Sun 12pm - 6pm


Meat Market: The Stables 

On at the Meat MarketSomething Less is an unmistakably Tasmania-centric collaborative exhibition and publishing project that breaks open the narrative of Tasmanian history and mythology and its place in the Australian national psyche.

Part of the Next Wave Festival, this challenging project looks at the little-understood Indigenous history of Tasmania, an island where imperial attempts at mass-genocide and ethnic 'cleansing' of Aboriginal peoples were more extensive than on mainland Australia. Whilst James grapples with identity, self and culture in his melancholic self-portraiture, Doyle offers a sharp counterpoint with his critical perspective, analysis and historical research.

Inspired by Tracey Moffatt's iconic photographic series Something More, Something Less examines truth, belonging, and the continuous alteration of identity.
