JUSTIFICATION

2017: Raj House. Hosted during FEAST Festival.
Materials: Digital Prints.

A personal exhibition, Justification is a response to the stress of my life: university workloads, marriage equality plebiscite, personal art practice, work, relationships, friendships, wants, needs, finances and more. Almost all these stresses needed consistent justification. My university needs me to justify my artwork. My government needs me to justify my relationships. My finances need me to justify my spending. This work is born from frustration and exhaustion. I wanted to make something minimal, not excessive, elaborate or ornate. I even wanted to keep this description short. I don’t want to justify my exhibition or my experience anymore. I am tired.
