hardy + strong > disturbia

     
 

Swinburne School of Design graduates Charmaine Hardy and Simon Strong present their first solo inter-state exhibition of individual and collaborative works. Drawing from their previous shows, "Domestic Gods" (2000), "Of Two Minds", "I Wanna Be A Star" (both 2001), and "Clone" (2002), the artists have prepared two new images, and included a number of transitional pieces.

Hardy & Strong use their work to respond to issues pertinent in the media, popular culture, and in the way we experience the world. Ironic, facetious, and sometimes confronting, these images can be appreciated both for their surface of playful exuberance, and for the sagacious social critique. "Disturbia" explores some of the conflicts, disappointments, and inequalities lurking beneath the veneer of everyday life. Hardy & Strong seek to expose the disparity in the experiences between city and suburban dwellers. They focus on the hypocrisy underlying the performance of social rituals, alienation in work, home, and family environments, and the frustration felt by individuals by the demands of contemporary living.
