FERAL4 OPENS FRIDAY 30 JANUARY 6-8pm


Artists in FERAL4 are Dominic Byrne, Sue Callanan, Andrew Christie, Richard Dunn, Sarah Fitzgerald, Veronica HabibRichard Kean, Kate McKay, Melissa Maree,  Christine Myerscough, Melissa Jane Palmer, Katya Petetskaya, Jannah Quill, Elizabeth Rankin, Ambrose  Reisch, Helen L Sturgess, Helen M Sturgess, Yoshi Takahashi, Phaptawan Suwannakudt, Judith Torzillo and Jeff Wood.

FERAL is a progressive, overlapping exhibition program of over 60 artists that will be open Friday - Sunday 11-5pm between 9 January - 8 February 2015. Its five opening events are Fridays 9, 16, 23 + 30 January and 6 February at 6-8pm, each of which will show the work of a different combination of about twenty artists. 
FERAL is designed for artists to experiment with installation or location of artwork in an architectural space that is already altered by the earlier installation of other artists' work, and which will be altered again when another group replaces that earlier installation. The FERAL project is part of the broader Articulate interest in the relationships artworks form with their locations. It does this by focusing in particular on the contribution that the changing installations of artwork make to the constitution of a site.

Phaptawan Suwannakudt  There, There 2014
When Phaptawan’s mother lost her memory, 
she started talking in the Lanna dialect of her 
childhood. Phaptawan sculpted the head 
of her mother from the memory of the time
 when her mother was a nun. The scattered 
fabric masks are placed together and filled 
with produce from local market.

Melissa Maree writes about FERAL3:

What is Doubling?
The Surrealist notion of 'Doubling' is a technique used to fracture and destabilize an object/image. The uncanny shudder felt from duplication also draws on a crisis of identity of divisions of the self (Unconscious/conscious and/or binary of reality/illusion).

A sense of humour is found in Veronica Habib's 'I Love What You Have Done With Your Hair, Underwear Brief, G-String and Dress' which strongly inspired the bridged link between 'Doubling'. After conversation and consideration of Habib's choice of materials and ideas (clothing/hair and warping of the familiar codes/perceptions of body image/sexuality), I saw a strong link in my manipulation of Mcdonalds Uniforms. The cutting of the uniforms served to create holes to acknowledge the space outside of the uniform – that is left open to audience interpretation.  


Doubling uses the pseudonym of Veronica Habib to show the value of collaborative authorship and the importance of acknowledging fellow artists in process-based projects. This acknowledgement involves speaking with artists in process-based projects in a means of verbal and non-verbal language. After much discussion with Habib I asked her if I could use her name as alias.

The idea of assuming an alias came from the 'Doubling' of Helen L Sturgess and Helen M Sturgess, two artists with the exact same first and last name who were placed in Feral 3's project week. The blurry lines between who was who, I felt created a unintended collaborative authorship. Extending on this idea the pseudonym opens up discussion for collaborative authorship, and visibility and invisibility of the artist in an artwork.  read more
