Anthony Lister recently made the trip from his homeland of Australia for his Slither Between the Blinds Shows Our Fears exhibition in Lisbon.
This is what he had to say about the exhibition:
“As a child, I was repeatedly told by my father that I had an Aboriginal uncle. I grew up until the age of 14 believing that in fact I was partly Aboriginal by blood and in turn embraced my perceived heritage. It wasn't until I asked for more details as a young teenager that I was confronted by an amused and dismissive father, laughing as he said: “I never said that”. In this exhibition I take a closer analysis of what it is to be influenced by misguiding role models and the potential psychologically damaging effects on misguided youth. These works are atheistic explorations analysing identity, culture, mythology, heritage, parenting and stereotypes.”
Here's some pictures of the show and a video about his time in the city.
We can't actually say that Lister did Lisbon unless he managed to get out of the gallery. Luckily for us and some of the cities finest walls, he did.
