New Work: Untitled

Chichi Cavalcanti
18 February 1998 to 4 April 1998

This exhibition included installation and mixed media paintings. The series Untitled is a piece consisting of 36 international flags, which are subverted, through colour inversion, to demand a closer inspection from the viewer.

The flags are selected from five continents, and they include ‘ghost’ flags, for example, those of the former Yugoslavia and Czechoslovakia. Others are ‘pop’ flags like the American and British.

By mixing the obscure with the easily identifiable, and the familiar with the exotic, the artist invites the viewer to reflect on how they perceive their own and other cultures.

The exhibition also included a series of collages and prints that further explore the relationship between colours and how we are affected by them.
