All Day Within The Dreamy House
Featuring the works of Olivia Boudreau, Kym Greeley, Marlene MacCallum, Sheila Pye and Regina Silveira, this contemporary art exhibition presents five artists whose artworks address domestic architectural spaces. Painting, video, site-specific installation, photogravures and artist books come together to interrogate ideas of the domestic.
The exhibition takes its title from a line in Mariana, a dark poem written in 1830 by Alfred, Lord Tennyson. Describing a woman who has been abandoned by her lover, Tennyson maps out an architectural scene where Mariana’s psychology is embodied in the creaking doors and empty spaces around her.
