I am pleased and excited to have received a grant from Create NSW, as part of its Arts and Cultural Development Program. The grant is in support of my project The Materiality of Memory to assist me in participating in the B#Side War festival in Treviso, Italy as well as undertaking a marble sculpting course in Carrara, also in Italy.
This gallery contains 3 photos.
The exhibition The Fate of Things: Memory Objects Art opens 1 November, 2018 at the Sydney Jewish Museum in Darlinghurst. I will be displaying objects and artworks alongside fellow Artist Anne Zahalka.
I am very pleased to have been selected for the 2018 Gunyah Artist in Residence (AIR) Program in August next year! gunyah.blogspot.com.au
The video work No,No,No will be exhibited in the B#Side War Project in Treviso, Italy from 8 December 2017 to 29 January 2018. This iteration, the first of three cycles in the B#Side War Project, focuses on the concept of Impermanence.
Impermanence accompanies the visitor through a suggestive narrative, dedicated to the concepts of memory linked to war experience and inherent loss of identity: http://www.bsidewar.org/en/upcoming/impermanence-exhibition/
