The drowned world is a major survey of the work of Melbourne-based artist, Jon Cattapan. Cattapan’s practice has reflected and contributed to developments and themes in contemporary Australian art practice, including: cultural identity, urbanism, the use of hybrid media, and collaboration.
Since the 1970s Cattapan has pursued ideas relating to the city, spectatorship, disasters, cinema, digital culture, and borders and boundaries. With a thematic rather than a chronological focus, The drowned world includes a selection of paintings and works on paper that portray the development of Cattapan’s practice over the last three decades, with particular attention given to his collaborative projects.
