Alter Ego
James Mullholland
18th March - 4th April

James Mullholland’s practice investigates the ‘nocturnal self’ that exists inside the young Brisbane male. Examining its formative relationship with crime scenes and ‘hooliganism’ that are culturally inseparable from the nightlife in Brisbane’s Fortitude Valley, Mullholland produces large, graphic, drawn, re-interpretations of this imagery on paper. The authenticity of the young male ‘deviant’ that frequents in news worthy ‘crime narratives’ is placed under scrutiny and separated from contemporary media driven myths. Ultimately, Alter Ego provides an outlet in which Mullholland explores his own ‘nocturnal self’ as well as those of his subjects.
