Nathan BABET (HREBABETZKY), new media, photographie, video, performance, sculpture et installation (Australie). Babet (Hrebabetzky) searches for the nostalgic shard of someone within us through the ritual of the 'Wandergesellen' (Journeyman), the Germanic mythology of the forest and the physicality of a labour from a time gone by. What constitutes identity is often complicated by our shifting notions of home – the place we long for, ending up as unstable as our image of the future. We yearn for 'something else' - the mythical, the symbolic, the ritualistic, the primitive, the shamanistic, the pagan. For Babet the exodus of the Wandergesellen provides a metaphor that allows him to explore some legacies of his own family's flight from Europe.
