Divided Selves

04 Jul 2014 – 30 Aug 2014 | GOMA | Cinema A

'Divided Selves' draws together works by contemporary international artists and filmmakers that explore the representation of charismatic figures and the disjunction between private and public personas. Charisma often relies on a merging of truth and fictions, as well as a reflection of constructed mythologies. What unites the complex characters profiled in these video works and feature films is the way in which seemingly incompatible details of their lives are woven into utterly compelling tales. 'Divided Selves' explores the illusory elements of the documentary genre, and the truth to be found in fictional accounts.

QAGOMA acknowledges all the artists and filmmakers who have generously provided screening materials for this program. Program curated by Ellie Buttrose, Queensland Art Gallery | Gallery of Modern Art.
