In Western Society happiness is a highly valued emotional state and we are surrounded by positive quotes and motivational sayings. Happiness is not a bad thing however, problems arise when we come to believe we should always feel this way. This exhibition takes a stand against the focus on happiness as a goal and celebrates all aspects of life. Through assemblage and mixed media artworks, Backhausen invites you to explore the nuances of life - with kindness, humour and a bit of attitude. 

Exhibition to be opened by Gina Fairley, Visual Arts Editor at ArtsHub, Saturday February 3, 12 - 2pm.
