Jenna Pippett

17 March 2018–07 April 2018

Considering a personal past using family memorabilia, specifically on her mother’s side. Pippett responds to items, offers visual links, engaging with a personal history. Altering and playing with memories has led Pippett to create new and interchangeable ways of viewing these past events.

Responding to a final photograph of her Great-Grandmother surrounded by family, Pippett re- creates the scene, drawing on subtle elements of performance and illusion. Creating an understanding of the individual, the exhibition performs a summoning of action and memory. Dušičky or ‘All Saints’ Day’ is the Czech day of remembering the departed, derived from Roman Catholic origins.

This project is supported by the South Australian Government through Arts South Australia.
