Make Yourself at Home
Artist: Meredith Meisetchlaeger
Medium: Photographs of 3 mixed media canvases
Description: Using a prefabricated paint-by-number kit as a base, this work layers in images and text from free neighborhood newspapers. My objective is to explore the relationships between folk and fine art; institution and community; and prescription and improvisation. Ultimately, I want to ask, “What are the rules of belonging? How are they determined and rewritten? Who decides?”
Mudfest Artist Interview with Curator
We acknowledge the Wurundjeri and Boon Wurrung people of the Kulin Nations as the Traditional Owners of the land upon which we live, work, and learn. We pay our respects to the Elders past, present, and emerging. Sovereignty was never ceded. This always was and always will be, Aboriginal land.
