Idols is a new online exhibition by Gerwyn Davies which reanimates popular iconography and myth through an assemblage of costume, performance and photography. Conjuring characters across the political, religious and historic, this work is interested in familiar narratives that are highly contrived in nature.
Davies recently held a solo exhibition at Sydney’s Australian Centre for Photography in February 2018 and he will be in the upcoming Biennale of Australian Art in the Art Gallery of Ballarat later in 2018. His work is held in private and public collections, including Artbank, HOTA Collection and Lady Cilento Children’s Hospital.
