CURATORIAL PROJECTS
  • reminiSCENT, MAY SPACE, Sydney, Australia; 2018
  • Kitchen-Studio, Black Box Projects, MAY SPACE, Sydney, Australia; 10 October to 4 November 2017
    The artists of this exhibition take the space of the kitchen as the site of their performative artwork. Utilising the domestic gesture of cooking and preparing food, the artists interrogate a number of broad themes including body image, communication, labour, and the environment.

  • Sugar, Sugar, Brenda May Gallery, Sydney, Australia; 1 to 19 October 2013
    This exhibition featured contemporary art made exclusively with sugar by ten female artists. By embodying the ephemeral nature of the substance, many of the installations only lasted for the duration of the exhibition.
