Something Borrowed professes to explore cultural (and mythical) appropriation, in particular the experience as somewhat 'young culture' of contemporary Australian borrowing stories and legends from all over the world to fill a void of inspiration growing up. It raises the questions of this appropriation to build a veneer and self valuation and where it leads. The exhibition looks to observe rather than clarify judgement and to suggest debate of these values.
