This exhibition surveys the work of Melbourne-based artist Katherine Hattam,
from the early drawings of her first exhibition at the Ewing & George Paton
Galleries at The University of Melbourne in 1978 through an evolving practice
that also encompasses collage, printmaking and sculpture. In a practice that has
extended over five decades, Hattam has developed a distinctive register of recurring
motifs, in particular the chair and other domestic objects, which she combines
with references to literature, feminism, family politics, art history and modern
psychoanalysis in the creation of beguiling and personally symbolic works.
The exhibition catalogue includes an essay by curator Emma Busowsky Cox
and is prefaced by Patrick McCaughey.
