Site specific project in Marrickville

A few weeks ago I was asked to participate in the final show at Marrickville Garage for the year entitled Some Rooms with Participants: Cherine Fahd: storeroom; Jürgen Kerkovius: main bedroom; Danica Knezevic: spare-bedroom; Margaret Mayhew: kitchen; Sarah Newall: lounge; Mark Shorter: office; Mark Titmarsh: garage; Sean Lowry: garage toilet; Sara Givins: garage door. The exhibition was a 1 day performance event, where artists activated spaces in the large domestic house, garage and courtyard in Marrickville, Sydney. I was allocated the garage door. I wanted to make something in line with the performative flavour of the exhibition so imagined the door as a threshold through which the viewer progresses. Like a letter through the mail box, I imagined the viewer as the letter or package being posted. The results were spectacular...Thanks Sarah & Jane at Marrickville Garage for a great year of festive art events!
