Hanging Histories, Caroline Askew

Hanging Histories

Wed 3 Oct - Sat 27 Oct 2012

Melbourne-based artist Caroline Askew’s large-scale kaleidoscopic installations explore memory and nostalgia, questioning and re-evaluating the place of the handmade and handcrafted in a world of the mass-produced object and a consumer-driven society. In reworking and re-assigning these handcrafted objects she not only honours the labours and the memory of unknown women but also creates new narratives and new levels of complex meaning.
