The Yearning for Authenticity
August 21 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm
“Authenticity is something we all yearn for—being true and real. And it’s the yearning for this, which underlies questions of identity and belonging. Dōgen, the 13th century Japanese Zen Master, wrote that ‘to study the self is to forget the self and be authenticated by the ten thousand things’, meaning that to understand who and what you are, one must let go of all the constructs and ideas about ‘self’ that we habitually default to. Being authentic is to engage without the ego projections that distort reality. By directly and openly engaging with precisely what enters your life in any given moment, we are authentic. That connection transcends intellectual constructs. We’re not thinking about it, we are it. In that moment the connection is what we are.”

Bruno Booth is a disabled artist living in Fremantle, WA. His recent work uses participation and large sculptural forms to create experiential works that challenge the able bodied to navigate a world that is uncomfortable by design. His constructed experiences poke fun at the assumptions many people have surrounding disability and yet they also leave lasting impressions that engender a deeper response from the audience.
