Being Human Human Being

July 5 - November 22

Soho Photography Quarter (SPQ) is an exciting new cultural space in Ramillies Place, W1, offering free open-air exhibitions and other events aimed at highlighting the very best of contemporary photography.

The opening SPQ presentation comes from the acclaimed indigenous Australian contemporary artist, Dr. Christian Thompson AO. Being Human Human Being is an immersive site-specific installation of works including a large-scale art frieze, cross street banners, a sound scape and projections.

Formally trained as a sculptor, Thompson’s multidisciplinary practice engages mediums such as photography, video, sculpture, performance and sound. His works explore constructs and ideas of identity, sexuality, gender, cultural hybridity, memory and history, often highlighting the relationships between these concepts and the environment.  He uses his own identity and multicultural background to interrogate and re-appropriate established, predominantly white systems of reference, as a way of imagining new personal positions. Throughout his work, he creates and inhabits a range of personae through performance and what he calls ‘anti-portraits’, incorporating handcrafted costumes and carefully orchestrated poses and backdrops.
