Exhibition Description

The second lockdown in Melbourne, Australia, lasted more than 100 days and was a culture shock for everyone in the city. The harsh restrictions meant that nobody was able to continue their lives as usual. 
My home became the stage for this conceptual series which tells an irreverent story of a life lost. Some of the images involve things I haven't done for years, others I did every week. 
The series starts with a woman who has just 'checked out' of the world, at the same time 'checking in to the non-Copacabana'. She starts to recall the elements of her past life, from more mundane lost loves, moving deeper into fantasy as she struggles with her tiny world. 


This exhibition is outdoors. Please check what COVID-19 restrictions are in place before you visit.
