Adrienne Doig: EXTRA - Art Collector

Adrienne Doig, ‘FEELS’, 2018. Embroidery on tapestry, 43.5 x 105 cm. Courtesy: the artist and Martin Browne Contemporary, Sydney.

Adrienne Doig’s exhibition ‘EXTRA’ aims to manipulate and re-contextualise the imagery and historical narrative of the tapestry. Doig’s works are made on souvenir wall hangings and cushion covers, encouraging us to seek and create a new interpretation of the original from a contemporary feminist perspective. Using humour, absurdity and ambiguity to address contemporary anxieties and cultural clichés, Doig reinterprets the scenes to fit with her own experiences and concerns, to describe the action in a contemporary context.

Exhibition opens: 6–8pm Thursday 23 August 2018
Exhibition closes: 16 September 2018
