Currently in the Gertrude Street facing windows of Australian Print Workshop is our latest showcase of artist books. We are very proud to be presenting recent works by contemporary artist Deidre Brollo.
Her work draws strongly on print culture and its inherent ideas: the logic of the archive, the transmission of narrative, and the notion of exchange. This focus provides a means to investigate ideas of memory and temporality, to question the conditions and terms on which we engage with the past, and to uncover the ways in the past is restless in the present.
Brollo’s work often employs interactive and immersive elements which are on full display across a variety of beautiful hand-made artist books. These works are currently available for personal viewing during gallery hours with many also available for purchase.
The display of Deidre’s artist books continues until 23 October 2023 and are viewable 24/7.
