Exhibition Opening 6 – 8pm Wednesday 5 October 2016
Exhibition Dates: 5 October – 9 December 2016
Curated by Michael Brennan

Fictional documentary material and sculptural works made in the body-mind of imagined Norwegian artist Tor Rasmussen (a temporary resident at Bond’s house in late 2014), are at once deceptive, self-deceptive, characterised and representational, and speak of discord and fracture. Tormentor charts Bond’s relationship with Rasmussen (also known as Kraken), determining the value of embodying and performing multiple invented artistic identities within a practice, encouraging imbalance and enabling unlikely action.

This exhibition will be the last presented at La Trobe University Museum of Art in Glenn College on La Trobe University’s Bundoora Campus. In 2017, the La Trobe Art Institute will deliver an exhibition program focused in Bendigo.
LUMA | La Trobe University Museum of Art, La Trobe University
