I’m delighted to re-exhibit my 2013 work Reminders in the Inside Outside Sculpture Plinth in North Sydney’s Civic Park. The work is now configured differently inside its new glass display case: less that half its original size and without the rusty wire roses.
This piece, originally made as a site specific installation for the Hidden exhibition at Rookwood Cemetery, employs the concept of the veil, alluding to the crossing from life to the state of death. The film of sheer organza is embroidered with handwritten words and phrases, obtained from the personal correspondence of various members of my family, that relate to the loss of loved ones.
Here are some day and night photographs in its new display location.
The original work wrapped around a tree and was staked to the ground with rusty wire twisted into the shape of roses.
The newly configured work will be on display in Civic Park for the next few weeks.
On another note: the Public Programs for my residency at the Coal Loader Centre for Sustainability have been finalised. You can click on this link to see when Open Studio days are scheduled, and check out the free workshops I’m offering for adults and children.
For a more comprehensive update on planned classes and workshops at various locations please check out this link to the News section of my website. I’m now offering an adults’ term class in creative processes at Ku-Ring-Gai Art Centre, as well as an assortment of stand alone workshops.
I hope you get to see Reminders while it’s on show in North Sydney. I’d love you to get in touch and let me know what you think!
