DALE COX- CASTLEMAINE WARRIORS
A REVISIONIST HISTORY FOR THE THE POST TRUTH ERA
Castlemaine State Festival 2019 16th March 31st March
A Short Film made with film maker Guy Richards explores an object based enquiry into the 'True' story of our Colonial Foundation Narrative.
Examining alternative historical and cultural possibilities, Cox challenges notions of the Eurocentric perspective on Australia’s colonisation. Fusing diametrically opposed and disparate cultural signifiers, the artist accentuates the dislocating nature of globalisation.A revisionist history is explored with humour through a documented art hoax that takes place right in Castlemaine.
