' will kick off our two part exhibition. GALLERY 3 - Nature Morte Monica Renaud Nature Morte is a collection of thoughts materialised and accumulated over time, within a domestic setting, created by a new Mother who was time poor, financially & geographically limited, sleep deprived and isolated. Themes of the body, domesticity, sexuality, nature, consumerism and the subconscious are explored. This body of work concludes with a new film, Stormy Seas with Pink. The flicker of Pink, symbol of Woman, tossed over and over, day in and day out, without reprieve. BIO Monica Renaud was born in Sydney in 1974 and raised in the inner south western suburb of Earlwood. She now lives & works from her Cronulla home studio on Sydney’s southern beaches, with her husband and two school -aged sons.
Monica Renaud ‘s diverse and evolving practice currently includes photography, film, assemblage, installation, and text based works. A practiced storyteller, Renaud shares with us her own life encounters, in an attempt to engage the viewer with her guileless exploration of the everyday. By revealing intimate experiences from her childhood to the present, it is quickly evident that her own personal narrative is often an all encompassing, universally shared and very human one. Her work brings together a broad range of social, political and environmental references in attempt to subvert the mainstream expectations of women and especially Mothers, in this 21st Century, which she feels, greatly impacts on humanity and the globe. GALLERY 4 - Betwixt and Between Jennifer Brady There are times that are not times, spaces that are not spaces, thoughts that are not thoughts, things that are not things - they are nothings; not-things.
Moments and experiences that are, but aren’t; private realities that possess their own monologues and experiences within a greater public sphere of intermingling macro and micro worlds. It’s like when you are awake at 3am just waiting to fall asleep but you’re not awake, and you’re not asleep - you are just floating in a transient moment of consciousness that isn’t anything. Like a building that has been left to rot and ruin; not occupied like before, but not occupied like it will be. Awaiting a certain change, the moment of the catalyst. A plateaued state of nothing; and not-things. Betwixt and Between is part of an ongoing investigation into moments and spaces that reside outside of linearity and chronology. The body of work examines specifically place, looking into abandoned environments; their contents, history, agency and relationship with time.
A site which once had a history rich in education, architecture and success, now rests as a habitat of delinquency and silence. Environments that are in a plateaued state, awaiting chance and future movements. Devoid of present actions or living forms, the documented environments are rendered solely as subject, reflecting the materiality of absence and developing a discourse between ‘past’ and ‘passed’ time. The work explores the traces and materialisation of previous movements and inhabitants of the site, ultimately describing a place which once was, but yet, strangely still is. BIO Jennifer Brady is a Sydney based emerging artist, currently entering her honours year in a Bachelor of Fine Arts at University of New South Wales - Art & Design. Working across fields of drawing, photography, installation and performance, Brady is concerned with experiences of consciousness and the discourse between public and private realities.
Since mid 2016, she has been involved in a variety of group shows and exhibited with Sydney based collective, Bedrock as well as international arts organisation, RAW. Brady’s practice also exists under the pseudonym ‘Shaz’, which has been showcased at TAP Gallery, Surry Hills; Orion Function Centre, Campsie; and in September 2017 exhibited collaboratively alongside Sydney Jazz trio Brady//Donkin//Phipps at Lentil As Anything, Newtown. In May 2017, Brady was a finalist for the Lethbridge 10,000: Small Scale Art Award in Brisbane.
