CAT RABBIT
KEPT IN MIND
28 JULY ~ 07 AUGUST
Opening Friday 29 July, 6pmKept in Mind is a new solo exhibition from Melbourne textile artist Cat Rabbit. The show incorporates a series of installations drawing from memories, both precious and incidental, brought to life using soft sculpture and hand embroidery techniques. Cat employs her old faithful materials of felt and linen, along with new forays into hand quilting and printmaking to explore the idea of what is kept in mind, and how it is remembered over time.

Bluethumb Presents – Icons Uncovered
9-10 JULY
OPENING NIGHT / SATURDAY 9TH JULY | 6PM
LOCATION / No Vacancy Gallery QV

Icons play a key role in the aesthetics of everyday life. Embedded within each is a myriad of memories and meaning, different to each viewer, but safe, nostalgic and familiar to all. The diverse artistic practice in this showcase has a range of cultural references including fashion, politics, entertainment, literature and our relationship with natural and urban environments. These thematic undercurrents are at times amusing and always provocative, challenging the current state of affairs by forcing us to reconsider our positions.

Arthouse Gallery is delighted to announce that we are now representing renowned Australian artist Katherine Hattam.

The ever-evolving practice of Melbourne based artist Katherine Hattam encompasses drawing, collage, printmaking and sculpture centred on the dialects of domesticity, family and self. Recurring motifs like chairs, teapots, scissors, pegs and hairbrushes form an inventory of objects that represents a complex constellation of relationships in which the autobiographical mingles with the symbolic. Mapping the world through her home, the artist creates a private iconography and psychological layering of memory via personally symbolic materials such as collaged excerpts of modernist textbooks from her late mother’s collection and deconstructed Penguin classics. Hattam employs repetition as a tool for revelation, excavating the edifice of family, feminism, education, literature, psychoanalysis and the role of the unconscious in art making.

Hattam will be exhibiting her debut show at Arthouse Gallery, ’72 Derwents’, from
12 August – 3 September 2016.

One of the artist’s iconic works, The integrity of the personality, will also be
displayed in the exhibition ‘Art of Parts’ at the Art Gallery of New South Wales from
17 September – 13 November 2016.

A partner piece to this work, The man whose dreams came true, is currently
on exhibit in our ‘Works on Paper’ group show until 9 July.
