Back when we interviewed Goodie last year she mentioned that she wanted to keep playing with the concept of art and space, and reading the release for her upcoming show at Juddy Roller, it looks as if she has done exactly that – and in a grand way.
“‘Make Yourself At Home’ explores notions of comfort, safety and routine – ideas commonly associated with ‘home’.
Processes are perpetually underway to render things familiar, form habits and configure certainties, in order for us to feel comfortable. We are continually coming to terms with the relationship between our bodies, other’s bodies and the space we inhabit, which function in a way as secondary bodies.
Nevertheless, what is familiar is only a recurring strangeness. ‘Make Yourself At Home considers the curious relationship between the mundane and the bizarre.
The recognisable is married with abstract, private with public, inside with outside, while ideas and mediums reverberate within each other and happen simultaneously on multiple levels. The show is a pattern of hypotheticals and realities, incorporating installation, painting, works on objects, objects in works, works on works, works on paper, collaborative noise works and poetry.
10% of the proceeds from this exhibition will be donated to the Royal Women’s Hospital.”
We’re grand fans of Goodies work, and as someone who has relatively come onto the scene here in Melbourne in a big way over the last few years, its awesome that we will get a show like this. We’re always big fans of shows down at Juddy Roller, and this one wont be an exception – so we’ll see you there Friday 17th February!
