A catalog for the exhibition Banned Books in Australia at the Baillieu Library has been released and a second edition with extra academic papers is on its way. Filled with essays by curators David Bennett, Jenny Lee and Richard Pennell on the history and status of censorship in Australia. It also contains my two works included in the show. The show is nearing it’s close and will only be open till Monday. Banned Books details.

The Lady’s Garden

Through the dichotomy of decorative and sublime responses to the landscape notions of constructed femininity as a means of control and censorship are investigated in these books. D.H. Lawrence’s novel Lady Chatterly’s lover has been used to set the framework of the garden to uncover how certain views or vistas are deemed unsafe needing categorisation and control for safe consumption, with true nature suppressed bellow. Informed by a history of female amateur artists and the controls exerted on them, this work plays with form and style to draw together histories of art, censorship, and female repression.
