Grieving (and) Weaving (and) Spreading (and) Becoming

by Veronica Spiljak

School of Arts, Media, Performance & Design (AMPD) presents thesis work by MFA candidates from the Graduate Program in Visual Arts.

Our interactions with personal ephemera – a home, a recovered letter, an expired bank card, an arranged breakfast table, a church stained glass window, an enclosed corner, your mother’s rosary, a childhood bedroom – give way to the psychological investigations of the self.

In this thesis exhibition, Grieving (and) Weaving (and) Spreading (and) Becoming explores Veronica Spiljak’s practice of subverting and incorporating found images, video, Slavic motifs, text and text(iles) in a disembodied search for identity, reconnection and softness. It explores the discourse of personal grief, trauma, the domestic space, ritual, religion and gendered domestic labour that can be found in weaving methodologies and in our own archives. In what ways can recreating, assembling, manipulating ephemera, space, language and the archive be used as a tool for a softer, slower, more patient future?
