What is it about monsters that evoke fear?
 
We all have our own monsters that lurk and skulk in our company. Mark du Potiers’ solo exhibition interrogates these monsters we encounter in our everyday lives. 
 
In the spirit of using art as medicine, du Potiers invites you to a special kind of wild rumpus at the gallery. Over two cycles of the full moon, costume, sculpture, installation, dance, music, activity and more will help cast the demons away.
 
Collaboration, connection, community, and conversation can aid in shining a different kind of light in places that need it most: you and me.
 
Exhibition developed by Moreton Bay Regional Council.
