This multidisciplinary exhibition comprised of cloth canopies, journal paintings, video installations and chalk art is informed by my ongoing research into the ‘erasure’ of women through acts of misogyny and violence. These crimes escalated during the pandemic and continue to date. In the context of these atrocities, my installation explores several metaphors of erasure with traces of the (absent) female body materialising as spectral residue. 


For three weekends during the exhibition I will be giving a short performance interacting with my art. For the opening and closing events, I am thrilled to be performing with two extraordinary sound artists and composers with whom I have a history, Dr. Cat Hope (Vic) and Liberty Kerr (NSW).
