David Griggs explores the darker undercurrents of human existence. His work, predominately portraiture, focuses on the human condition; drawing on political imagery, underground media, local histories and personal experience. Famous for his bold anarchistic approach, Griggs takes the everyday and flips it to expose the cracks, exhuming the raw undercurrent of a society. He documents intimate chance moments and the deliberate actions of his friends, and strangers, within an unidentifiable Manila.

Looking at David Grigg’s exhibition Between Nature and Sin, participants will borrow pop-culture references such as emoji’s, to create colourful artworks and collages. Participants will draw from personal interest and experiences as well as engaging with the visual language presented within the exhibition.
The Manggan project has been in development for over six years and has had a number of manifestations, including a film and exhibition. It has culminated here in a gathering together of ideas, knowledge, conversations, people, venues, artworks and objects which will, on its extensive journey across Australia, gather together more people, organisations, ideas and conversations.
