Continually Genuine is a performance project based on the artists’ process of applying for Australian residency. Kubota Fumikazu and Tania Smith were obligated to prove that their union was “genuine and continuing”. Recollections of tender moments were retold to a stranger in the sterile surrounds of a government office. The absurdity of this situation, and the broader issues in contemporary politics regarding immigration constitute the basis for the project.
Performance will take place once on the opening night – 6-8pm Friday 4 July.
