From what is kept inside a desk drawer to content discovered in the inner depths of an old coat pocket are the, often familiar, materials and personal possessions from Stonehouse's own daily life that become assemblages. The works refer to the experience of constructing a secret place, where anything can happen, built on childish wonders and the worries we form at night. The creations are a nod to an optimistic childhood, a projected safe place; a place of temporality and a place to hide in. It is like that sandwich you get from your Mum: evenly cut in half, filled with peanut butter, its filling cocooned by the soft white bread, hidden inside. This exact sandwich sits inside a container, inside a bag, on its way somewhere, being lugged around.
We acknowledge and pay respect to the Traditional Owners of the lands upon which our campus is situated, the people of the Boon Wurrung and Woi Wurrung, who have created art, made music and told their stories here for thousands of generations. We also acknowledge and extend our respect to the Traditional Owners of all lands on which our work is viewed, shared and enjoyed, and to all Elders, past, present and emerging.
