"domestica"
2000-04-14 until 0000-00-00
Institute for Modern Art
Brisbane, Q, AU Australia

A new art exhibition titled domestica showcases the work of three Brisbane artists and opened at Space 43 Contemporary Art Spaces on Friday 14th of April at 6pm. A combination of Photographs, Paintings and Picturegrams comprises the exhibition giving a fresh insight into Queensland domestic life. domestica aims to readdress specific notions of domesticity through various mediums and from differing perspectives.

Artists Lise MacDermott, Annie Hogan and Jill Giles are presenting their individual works using domesticity as a central theme. Lise MacDermott is a painter, profiling her latest series of icons of Queensland architecture. Her 'handyman' approach; enamel housepaints applied to masonite board, provides a link to the building industry itself and makes reference to the home crafts tradition of the suburban homemaker.

Annie Hogan is a photographer whose images of Queensland interior domestic spaces echo through memory and the past. These empty interiors which are simultaneously rich with surface detail and decoration evoke simultaneously both absence and presence. Jill Giles creates large picturegrams of common domestic items including dishcloths, sponges and doilies. Picturegrams are made in the photographic printing stage by substituting the object for the negative. Giles works celebrate minutiae and how somewhat banal scraps of domesticity can be transformed into meditations on texture and pattern. domestica is a thoroughly Queensland-centric exhibition. It takes ideas of the home and re-interprets them from three individual perspectives: the suburban Queenslander as home and icon, the often hidden agenda of the interior and the thorough exploration and delight found in the banal, said Annie Hogan. As artists, we aim to twist the idea of suburbia a little, and give it a fresh angle. Our works can be appreciated by a variety of audiences, perhaps all who participates in domestic life, she said. domestica will be exhibiting at Space 43, 43 Vulture St (cnr Bond St) West End until the 27th April. Images available. It will be officially opened by Renai Stoneley, newly appointed CEO of Queensland Artworkers Alliance.
