Chris Bond’s has undertaken his PhD at the Victorian College of the Arts. His exhibition ‘Kraken’ is on show at the Margaret Lawrence Gallery and is the culmination of four years of research, art making and exhibitions.
‘At the centre of the research and exhibition is the character Kraken… a performance artist with an antagonistic bent who you may already be familiar with. Together, Kraken and I create uncanny scenarios in which we think, feel and act from within the mind and body of the other, generating novel narrative, fictional documentation and source material. The exhibition showcases processes and outcomes of the relationship- video, performance remnants, text and painting.’ (Chris Bond, 2018)
