Girl Shed II | March Project, Second Comings Marrickville Garage
As part of the 2015 Marrickville Open Studio Trail (MOST) and Art Month Sydney, Marrickville Garage launches its 2015 program on Saturday 28 March: 11 – 4pm & Sunday 29 March: 11 – 4 pm, followed by closing drinks 3 – 5pm.
Second Comings, is the re-enacting, recreating and revisiting of works the participating artists have deemed as feminist reference points in the art canon.
Sarah Newall's ‘Girl Shed’ reworks Laurie Simmons’ photographs of miniature doll house interiors ‘Early Colour Interiors’, enlarged but only just enough for a (very) small adult to occupy becoming a claustrophobic, too small adult cubby house. Newall’s ‘room of one’s own’ carves out a space only for her, built to accommodate her physicality the work is also a reflection on painting, domesticity and brings together Newall’s interest in how artists Donald Judd and Andrea Zettel have created spaces for living as integral aspects of their practices.
