AboutAn Eclectic Inheritance is an exploration of Melanie LaRocque's cultural roots. A self-taught artist, LaRocque brings together the seedlings of her portfolio in her debut exhibition.
The works conceptualise the foundations of her cultural existence. She asks who or what defines our culture: Is it truly made up of the best elements of our past? How does it affect us and can we redefine it? Do we subsequently recreate the fabric of culture by acknowledging the diversity of things that influence our lives?
