PhD candidate Owen Leong’s Bloodmilk is at Dianne Tanzer Gallery + Projects, Melbourne from 17 September - 11 October 2014.
Bloodmilk explores systems of power, the transmission of culture, and the body as a physical site of exchange. The shifting interplay of darkness and light, the unsettling and seductive, unfolds in a series of self-portraits that transform the artist’s body through fictional selves to open a space for new identities to come into being.
