Own Goal

Various Artists at AVA

'Own Goal', rather than referring to the accident in a soccer game when a player kicks the ball across their own goal line, is a reflection upon goals in the personal and possessive sense.

'Own Goal' in this context is interested in the psychology of the moment when a particular milestone is achieved or identified.
 
Participating artists:

Sanell Aggenbach, Lynette Bester, Stuart Bird, Matthew Blackman, Kevin Brand, Katherine Bull, Karen Cronje, Connor Cullinan, Justin Fiske, Carol-Anne Gainer, Jonathan Garnham, Svea Josephy, Anton Karstel, Marlise Keith, Tim Leibbrandt, Lizza Littlewort, Virginia MacKenny, Charles Maggs, Lindile Magunya, Bettina Malcomess, Richard Mason, Xolani Moshani, Ndikhumbule Ngqinambi, Anet Noval, Jo O'Connor, Colin Payne, Jeremy Puren, Willie Saayman, David Scadden, Linda Stupart, Michael Taylor,  Johann van der Schijff, Max Wolpe, Ed Young and Dale Yudelman.

Curated by the AVA Football Club.

31 May - 25 June
