Join curator Mihnea Mircan for an in-depth guided tour of A Biography of Daphne.

A Biography of Daphne is a curatorial project that revisits the Classical myth of Daphne as the starting point for an investigation of trauma and metamorphosis, symbiosis and entanglement in contemporary art. In this exhibition Daphne is cast as a dynamic model for the ruptures between the ‘figures’ and ‘grounds’ of today’s visual, social, political and ecological environments. The exhibition features newly commissioned and existing works by Australian and international artists that are assembled to explore the integrity and vulnerability of bodies, their performative or prosthetic extensions, and the alliances they enter – across species or registers of representation – that open identity to the possibility of a radical othering.

ACCA is wheelchair accessible, with two accessible parking spaces outside the entrance on Sturt Street and an accessible bathroom. ACCA also has a wheelchair that is available for use by visitors on request from the reception desk. We welcome Guide, Seeing Eye and other assistance dogs in the gallery.
