Use to stop doors from rattling in frames is a collection of new drawing, painting, and sculptural work by emerging Western Australian artist Teelah George. George’s practice employs archival information as a departure point for the questioning of ‘place’, both her place within the arts community and within Australian societal and historical contexts. George has researched archival narratives and constructs, engaging with a number of public and private art collections, including the Cruther’s Collection of Women’s Art (housed at the University of Western Australia) and State Art Collection of Western, to investigate the obsessive nature of collecting and making.
