Saying Goodbye to that Room, 1995

Materials: Mattress ticking, zipper, soil, white pigment with acrylic binder

Part of an artist-initiated public exhibition called The Viaduct Project which used the arches of the railway viaduct that crosses Federal Park, Annandale. The exhibition was curated by Rose Ann McGreevey and Barbara Halnan. The intention of this work was to juxtapose the  nineteenth century architectural ornamental features with the early twentieth century functional technological design of the viaduct and to raise questions of aesthetic codes, assumptions about gender and the division between public and private space.
