Join guest artist Janet Laurence for an special Walk & Talk through Fairhall exhibition-house as she discusses her work and the inspiration and processes behind The Palm at the End of the Mind.*
Janet Laurence, one of Australia’s most celebrated contemporary artists, will explore our collection alongside her own creative practices - collecting and saving, nature and the environment - within the context of Fairhall exhibition-house.
Laurence’s artistic practice is based on the Wunderkammer, a “cabinet of curiosity” or a collection of notable objects.
This exhibition is part of the continuing House of Ideas project series where TJC commissions guest artists to use Fairhall as a site-specific installation space to reconceptualise the exhibition-house and explore its many layers of meaning. By doing so, The Collection will continue to consider old objects in new ways.
