A selection of decorated ceramic vessels, titled A Gothic Tale, 9 & 7, 2021

THE CHOSEN VESSEL: BELINDA MICHAEL & TIFFANY TITSHALL

WED 14 DEC 2022 - FRI 3 FEB 2023

Please join us at the Post Office Gallery for the exhibition opening, with Natasha Mitchell, presenter, ABC Radio National, on Fri 9 Dec @ 6, for 6.30pm. All welcome!

In an exhibition showcasing the collaborative work of Belinda Michael and Tiffany Titshall, these two important central Victorian artists present a powerful new series of drawings and ceramic vessels of immense beauty and intrigue.

Set within the colonial Australian gold rush era, the artists challenge stereotypical narratives, recreating traditional scenes with a powerful female protagonist avenging the murder of her mother by performing wild and powerful acts on her harem of enslaved men.

Here, accepted histories are upended replaced by a potent gothic mythological tale of female power, lust and revenge!

NB:*The PO Gallery will be closed from Fri 16 Dec 2022 until Wed 4 Jan 2023.
