Title: The Good Room

Artist: Kate Murphy

Theme: This body of work explores the dual nature of The Home as both a very private stage and a public showcase.

Format of the exhibition:

•An unseen clock chime mechanism is activated by viewers as they enter the space.

•Single video piece projected in a circular format onto a pencil-drawn mural of a lace doily (no sound, dimensions variable but approx 1.5 m in diameter)

•An installation of interconnected, kinetic ticking clock mechanisms with small found objects such as swallow feathers and sewing threads (dimensions variable, approx 3m x 2m)

•Two larger oil paintings (110 x 175cm and 100 x 100cm),

•One medium-sized painting (48 x 48cm)

•Eight small paintings /made objects on found frames (max 25cm each).
