Mad Wings is the powerful collaboration of Maddison Gibbs and Jason Wing.
Barkindji woman Maddison Gibbs current works include themes such as activist art, dual histories, stories of past and present contemporary Aboriginal societies and spirit. She is a multidisciplinary artist with a wide spectrum of cultural praxis, methods and ideologies. Current thematics are women into intergenerational stories of contemporary Aboriginal affairs. Gibbs’ work is polarising, offering up culturally feminine intuitive visual poetics, starkly contrasted with her art activism at the barricades. The dual sensitivities of caring for a country and fighting injustice is an interesting tension.
Wing is a Sydney-based Biripi-Chinese artist who calls into question our understandings of history and current socio-political realities by repurposing everyday objects and imagery. His works of street art, photography, installation, and painting explore the themes of indigeneity, mythology, colonization, migration, and racism, particularly as they relate to history and everyday life in Australia.
