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. The exhibition comprises a found video of a 1950s knife-throwing mother and daughter act, re-worked domestic decorative objects, large-scale paintings and a kinetic sound installation with clock chimes.
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).
