Work > Flagging Opinion

Ashlee Laing examines the role of the Australian Flag in contemporary Australian life in his new exhibition, Flagging Opinion. Laing investigates the schisms of esteem, novelty and identity in an installation that brings together photographs of himself and objects he has made from the Australian Flag.

In the gallery space these photographs are placed within a soundscape of voices that vocalise comments made on social media about his work, Untitled (Oi, Oi, Oi), which was removed from the BUILDING | ART ON WALLS project in Tallangatta 36 hours after it was installed.
