EXHIBITIONS: BLOOD ON SILK: LAST SEEN

22 Jul 2017 – 17 Sep 2017 | 10.00am – 5.00pm

Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre presents its inaugural Turbine Hall Commission, Blood on Silk: Last Seen by established Western Sydney artist, Fiona Davies.

For this new work Davies will transform the Turbine Hall by creating five suspended makeshift hospital rooms from handmade silk paper. Representing the merging of public and private spaces, Last Seen investigates the emotional landscape that carers and visitors have with the hospital environment experience.

Fiona Davies is a PhD candidate at the University of Sydney. Davies’ works are multimedia installations encompassing both the real and simulated. She holds a B.Sc (UNSW) and Bachelor of Visual Art (UWS). She was awarded a MFA from Monash University.

Her current theoretical practice examines ICU medicalised dying, intertwining emotional knowledge with contemporary medical practices – specifically, definitions of death, the materiality of blood and processes of surveillance.  Her ongoing project, Blood on Silk (2009 – ) included working in collaboration with the late physicist Dr Domachuk.

She exhibits in both formal institutions and non-traditional spaces nationally and internationally.

The Turbine Hall Commissions offer visitors new perceptions of our architecture and public spaces through site responsive artworks.
