The feminist labour of re-membering at the Destitute Asylum 

Who remembers the babies born at Adelaide’s Destitute Asylum? Who remembers their mothers, and the physical, spiritual and emotional labour they performed? At this participatory event, the names of 1678 babies will be recited at the Migration Museum, in a feminist act of re-membering the past.
In the 1850s a state-funded Destitute Asylum was established in Adelaide to house the poverty-stricken, and from the outset it provided ‘lying-in’ accommodation for pregnant women who were unmarried, widowed or deserted. In 1878 a purpose-built Lying-in Home was built at the Destitute Asylum, and between 1880 and 1909, 1678 babies were born there, 116 of whom were stillborn.
The Migration Museum site includes the former Lying-in Home building. Join your voice with ours as we remember the babies born in this place, and as we honour their mothers by sharing the labour of this reading. Explore our exhibition about the Destitute Asylum, and stay for a discussion of the history of our site.

Disquiet  India Flint 

OPENING : Sunday 23 July 2.30pm OPEN HOURS: Friday 21 July 2017 – Sunday 27 August 2017 

India’s work, driven by topophilia, conflates the visual and written poetics of place and memory, using ecologically sustainable contact print processes from plants and found objects together with walking, drawing, assemblage, mending, stitch and text as a means of mapping country, recoding and recording responses to landscape - working with cloth, paper, stone, windfall biological material, water, minerals, bones, the discarded artefacts and hard detritus of human habitation, the local weed burden. The work has been described (by Prof Chris Orchard) as using “the earth as the printing plate and time as the press”. 

Time and Distance Sally Deans

OPENING: Sunday 3 September, 2.30pm OPEN HOURS: Friday 1 September 2017 – Sunday 15 October 2017 

"Drawing inspiration from the area around the lower Murray and Fleurieu Peninsula, Sally Deans paints atmospheric sky, sea and landscapes that are distinctly characteristic of this region.
These works explore the passage of time as it defines our view of the landscape through transitory effects of weather and light, while recording the slower changes marked by nature throughout the changing seasons. " 

Solastalgia Claire Brooks, Lesa Farrant, Leonie Westbrook, Jo Wilmot 

OPENING: Sunday 3 September, 2.30pm OPEN HOURS: Friday 1 September 2017 – Sunday 15 October 2017 

 

Philospher Glen Albrecht defines Solastalgia as “an emplaced or existential melancholia experienced with the negative transformation (desolation) of a loved home environment”. Works in this exhibition speak from places between grief and hope to a collective consciousness that is driving action to mitigate the effects of global warming and climate change.

OPENING: Thursday 27 July 2017 OPEN HOURS: Thurs 27 July - Sat 26 Aug 2017, Wed - Sat, 11am - 4pm 

The theme of medicine is very close to my heart. If contemporary art is a record of the time that we live in then [sic] Rose endeavours to explore what affects us today in health care. Let us open discussion and investigate issues and practices relevant to today’s women.
The book Medicine: An Illustrated History by Albert S Lyons MD and R Joseph Petrucelli II MD is an excellent documentation of the social political and historical changes in medicine. 11 female artists [emerging to established; installation artists, painters, sculptors] have been invited to explore and create works that is of significance to them. The exhibition encompasses works around what is important to these female artists in relation to health care; the politics, the social, the historical. Conjuring thoughts of their own experiences, good, bad or ugly - Patty Chehade

Cups of nun chai (a participatory memorial/a media intervention) Alana Hunt

OPENNG Fri 6-9pm, OPEN HOURS Sat & Sun midday to 4pm, or by appointment Fri 22 Sept - Sun 24 Sept 2017 

“Cups of nun chai” is a participatory memorial that emerged from the summer of 2010 in occupied Kashmir. It has grown from personal conversations, shared in private; to photographs and texts written from memory and shared online; and most recently took the form of a newspaper serial published in the daily newspaper Kashmir Reader over eleven months which reached tens of thousands of people during one of Kashmir’s most charged moments in recent history. This multi-faceted personal perspective on political events draws on communities from Australia, Belgium, Thailand, India and finally Kashmir to provide a complex view, a chorus of voices that are trying to make sense of a silenced conflict.

For its presentation at Reception Project Space, “Cups of nun chai” will take the form of the full compilation of 118 conversations in their published newspaper within a reading room. Readers will be afforded the chance to linger with the physicality of these exchanges as well as their serialisation within the very community they discuss. Over the duration of the installation various speakers will present talks and discussions with audiences/ participants on topics directly or indirectly relating to ideas of domesticity, communication, trauma, and power.

Women At Work  Kerrie Stratford, Diana Wiseman, Jo Fife, Mary Daily, Jean McArthur, Yoko Kajio, Francesca da Rimini CURATOR: Dr Linda Marie Walker WRITER: Dr Teri Hoskin

OPENING Friday August 25th, 6pmOPEN HOURS Fri August 25 – Sun September 24, 2017, Gallery Hours: weekdays 10am - 5pm, weekends 10am - 3pm"

Women At Work brings together eight artists: Kerrie Stratford (paintings), Diana Wiseman (paintings/prints), Jo Fife (textiles), Mary Daily (ceramics), Jean McArthur (mixed media), Francesca da Rimini (installation/performance), Yoko Kajio (installation/performance), Teri Hoskin (writing: catalogue essay). Each artist has a distinct practice that has been active and exhibited for some considerable time; the artists therefore have depth of skill and purpose. Each medium belongs to a rich history within the visual arts, traditional and nontraditional, and inscribed by specific materials, techniques and processes that play out in very different ways; these ways attend to cultural and personal

concerns, and to locations, climates and experiences. Some mediums are combinatory –their material is manifold – and inspired by research and political/environmental issues that involve the expertise of others. The ‘Work’ in Women At Work is the-work of ‘artwork’; it is the ‘work’ that each artist does as-an- artist; ‘Work’ is what it is, in itself, informing, influencing, the artist’s work; it is the interest(s) an artist has in life, in time; it ‘causes’ work to appear/arise as artwork; the artist is who she is, At-Work in the world, and At-Work with work that is her own topic-of-Interest.
