Alice in the Antipathies is an inter-medial, inter-cultural, postcolonial performance text,
loosely based on Alice in Wonderland. Victoire is a visual artist, curator, writer who works
from Cairns, Far North Queensland. She developed this narrative to uncover the struggle
vencountered by the Asian diaspora to reconcile identity. By plundering the imagery and text of
Alice in Wonderland, Victoire covertly raises human rights issues such as migration, settlement,
difference, discrimination, women's rights, and challenges the power of language to create
awareness in her practice.
In this talk, Victoire demonstrates how an artist can use the printmaking and a variety of
cross-cultural elements, visual imagery, sound, dance and smell in order to find a sense of
belonging and to acknowledge her Asian and Australian influences using memories.
Come join us in this intriguing talk by Dr. Sasi Victoire!
