SKIN DEEP is an interactive exhibition that presents intimate and personal stories of LGBTQI+ people through their tattooed bodies and stories, celebrating diversity, defiance and body art. SKIN DEEP is curated by the National Art School Executive Producer Terese Casu, and is made up of several unique components – presented as one integrated audience experience or as separate experiences. LGBTQI+ community participation is central to all components of SKIN DEEP – as narrators, models, storytellers and performers.
Powerhouse Director and Choreographer, Meryl Tankard, will work with community members and aerialist, The Amazing Ari, to present a beautiful performance of movement and dance.
Watch as the performer’s body tattoos, unveiling secrets and hidden stories are slowly revealed. The performance will be accompanied by arias of unrequited love by the Sydney Song Company.
Audiences will also have access to the Between Good and Evil tunnel exhibition by Stefania Riccardi, exploring the tattoos of the female inmates at the Darlinghurst Gaol – now the location of the National Art School.
Please note body nudity will be included as part of the exhibition and performances
