THAT WAS THEN: THIS IS NOW Solo Exhibition by Jane Bodnaruk - a Sydney Craft Week Event


Wed Oct 12 2022 at 10:00 am to 04:00 pm


White Rhino Artspace | Sydney, NS

White Rhino Artspace is pleased to present THAT WAS THEN: THIS IS NOW by Jane Bodnaruk from 12 to 23 October 2022
Jane Bodnaruk collaborates with women of the past by preserving and extending the meaning of domestically produced and utilised colourful embroideries. For the exhibition That was Then: This is Now, Jane has reused tray cloths as her raw canvas, using plain stitching to immortalise everyday phrases and activities of the coronavirus pandemic.
The domestic space of the family home is protected by the impenetrability of its ‘four walls’. During the pandemic, the walls became penetrated as never before. There was an intensity of public information bombarding our private spaces as teachers, colleagues, friends and news arrived via the internet. At the same time, details of life in the background of our domestic spaces flowed outwards.
We performed activities devised on a global scale and practiced on a domestic scale. This exhibition is an immersive and flowing document of an event lived substantially in the isolation of our homes.
