Domestic Duties Chapter Three - Official Opening

Please accept this warm invitation to the official opening of my next solo exhibition, Domestic Duties Chapter Three 'Sacred in the Domestic' to be held at Noosa Regional Gallery on Friday 1 December 2017 from 6pm. Guest Speaker Dr Ginna Brock.

Domestic Duties Chapter Three is the finale in the trilogy of explorations into the domestic sphere. 

Sacred in the Domestic (detail), 2017, vintage laundry trolley, wire basket, plastic, upcycled pillow-cases, ink, 22 carat gold leaf and varnish.

One of the features of Domestic Duties Chapter One (2011) and Domestic Duties Chapter Two (2012) was audience participation. The audience informed the development of the works in both exhibitions by responding to the term ‘Domestic Duties’. Domestic Duties Chapter Three continues the conversation and documents the response to the phrase ‘Sacred in the Domestic’ by transferring them onto the prayer flag like fabric so that it reads as a stream of consciousness poem – a snapshot of our community in the here and now.
