BIENNALe OF AUSTRALIAN ART
MEU HOMER, MEU AMOR - CATHERINE GOMERSALL
21st September - 6th November 2018
Meu Homer, Meu Amor is a solo exhibition by Catherine Gomersall drawing on social media interaction and the love she has for her once stray cat, Homer (named after the ancient Greek poet, not Homer Simpson). Coming into Gomersall’s life in April of 2018, Homer is now an integral part of her life and has become a regular feature on Gomersall’s social media networks.
Similar to her previous social media projects, Meu Homer, Meu Amor plays with the online conversations with Gomersall’s Facebook ‘friends’ and ‘followers’ on images of both Homer and herself that are uploaded on her Facebook page. The exhibition will be a combination of wall hangings, large-scale textile work and sculpture, commenting on the internet culture and its place within today's society.
