Deborah Kelly – No Human Being is Illegal (2014)

19th Biennale of Sydney: Deborah Kelly. No Human Being is Illegal (In All Our Glory) from SBS Subscription TV on Vimeo.

Australian artist Deborah Kelly and her collaborative collage work for the 19th Biennale of Sydney, 2014. Deborah is known for her award-winning collaborative artwork with Tina Fiveash, Hey, Hetero! (2001) about which Tina Fiveash writes, ‘Hey Hetero! returns the gaze at heterosexuality: the priveleged sexuality which makes gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender movements both possible and necessary.’

After an open call for volunteers for the No Human Being is Illegal art project (2014), twenty people were selected out of 230 volunteers. They were photographed and then have been “collaged” in workshop sessions which continued throughout the Biennale period.
