False Sense of Security

The exhibition ‘False Sense of Security’, explores the subjectivity, privilege and hidden cost of security. It considers our response when things push up against the limits of our control and the way fear can be leveraged for power, or used to justify actions that would normally be considered unethical.

The ideas and structures we habitually trust to underpin our sense of security, both as individuals and a nation, are deeply ingrained. Often there is an invisible balancing act when weighing up the perceived benefits of these versus the cost. The artworks brought together here not only illuminate some of the specific issues that arise out of this type of decision making, but draw attention to the grey areas and problematics of this security versus harm equation, unveiling something about our collective psychology in the process.

‘False Sense of Security’ includes works by Fernando Do Campo, Heath Franco, Doug Heslop, Tracey Moffat and Gary Hillberg, Halinka Orszulok, Shevaun Wright and Giselle Stanborough. Curated by Halinka Orszulok.
