'Join Nicola Gunn, as she presents her fictional self as the subject of a fictional retrospective of her fictional work.
An unclassifiable excursion into the gap between woman and myth, Gunn’s work is a dazzling whirl of video, sculpture, illustration, photography, text, audience debate and live performance. With wry humour and a playful sense of the absurd, Gunn transforms an art exhibition into an interdisciplinary free-for-all, where her identity both as a person and an artist is moulded and reshaped before your very eyes.
Immersive and entertaining, 'In Spite of Myself' is a mind-bending exploration of the nebulous line between who we are, who we say we are and who we seem to be.' (Source: Melbourne Festival website)
