Past lives remembered
Jenny Kitchener will be exhibiting a selection of prints and artists books at the Next Art Gallery at Southern Cross University from April 3 to April 27.
The exhibition, titled Past Lives: The Art of Remembering, is a mini-retrospective and features new work as well as work from the past 15 years. Jenny studied visual arts at Southern Cross University in the 1990s.
Since 1990 Jenny has been making art works which reflect on the importance of both family and home. More recently, she has been exploring the fragmented and unreliable nature of memory and how, over time, our memories of past events are often subject to change.
Printmaking processes such as lithography, etching, screen printing, relief printing and monoprinting will feature in this exhibition. Many of the works also directly incorporate or make reference to textile-based techniques, including needlepoint, embroidery and patchwork. The artists book also forms an important part of Jennys output and over 15 artists books will feature in this show.
The exhibition will be opened by Jan Davis, Associate Professor and Head of Visual Arts at Southern Cross University, on Tuesday, April 3, from 5pm to 7pm.
Next Contemporary Art Space, Goodman Plaza, Southern Cross University is open Mon-Thurs, 10am-4pm.
