All That Remains – Benalla Art Gallery March 8 – April 22, 2019

All That Remains focuses on the artist’s street-based work (2005-2109) in which she stencils dumped mattresses, couches and chairs with meaningful texts to create temporary public art from hard rubbish. Fabric from abandoned mattresses have been painstakingly remove and tenderly fashioned into soft sculpture in form of pyjamas and swatch books. Gleaned from nature strips, the artist transforms these pre-loved remnants of domestic histories into metaphors for the transience of urban lives and spaces. In this exploration of art from the street  it represents us with a portrait of culture as seen our well worn everyday detritus.  Bryony Nainby – Director, Benalla Art Gallery
