Lunchtime Artist Talk - Wednesday 17th November 2021- 12:30-1pm
You're invited to C-A-C Lunchtime Artist Talks, a Webinar series alongside Fisher’s Ghost Art Award 2021 at Campbelltown Arts Centre.
A series of three discussions over three weeks with six different artists from the exhibition.
I am very grateful to have the opportunity to kick it off in the first lunchtime chat with amazing artist Freya Jobbins, on Wednesday 17th November. We will be discussing our works currently in the Fisher's Ghost Art Award at Campbelltown Arts Centre, and answering any questions you may have.
It is an online event, so you can join us from anywhere in the world - click here to register your attendance.
Hope you can join us!
I am ceramic artist creating works informed by issues of gender inequality. In my latest body of work I am using the domestic jug as a metaphor for the role of women throughout history and now, as they are filled and emptied, as the clay becomes an extension of the body.
Whilst feminine voices throughout history and today are often hushed or silent, the household objects we as women use, and have often made ourselves, give accounts of shared experiences that transcend time.
For this specific body of work, I am focussing on the statistic 'one in six'.
The statistics tell us that one in six Australian women have experienced abuse, sexual assault or physical violence from a man within their lifetime. Compounded in this statistic is the experience of the other five in six and their unaccounted experiences of verbal abuse, harassment, discrimination or other gendered inequalities that impact women's ability to make decisions about our own lives, bodies and futures.
Walls adopt the role of the institution, as the white jugs remain largely invisible, but for a small light glowing from within, as the walls pour their contents out into the world through the mouth of the jug.
Earthly and organic in nature, the contents pouring from the wall contradict the cold and severe architecture, casting their shadow in an attempt to alter the wall's appearance.
