Created specifically for Territorial, a commissioned mini-survey of work by Eugenia Lim at Manningham Gallery, A Cultural Exchange is a ‘life swap’ between artist Eugenia Lim and Katia, a resident of the Manningham region. With assistance from curator Megan McEvoy, the artist put a callout for a woman of the same age, based in the Manningham area, who would be willing to swap a “typical day” in her life. Through a notice at a local gym, Eugenia found Katia, a beautician. Exploring concepts of marking territory and identity in unfamiliar locations, A Cultural Exchange was a documentary and reality video exercise. Each woman exchanged a typical working day in their lives, from waking through to sleep.
