Conquest of the Useless

Sydney Guild, Sydney, Australia

December 2013

Conquest of the Useless is a collaboration between artists KK+JLD and curatorial collective SuperKaleidoscope. The project explores the precarious relationship between aspirations and failure in reference to the ancient Greek myth of Sisyphus. The faulted hero Sisyphus was sentenced by the Gods to his interminable fate; of rolling a rock up a mountain only to watch it roll back down under its own weight. 

This project has been assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council, its arts funding and advisory body
