Responding to her recent research in the Egyptian, Medieval and Greek and Roman collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Brooklyn Museum in New York City, Just will create a faux archaeological display of real and fictional tools historically used to reflect, probe, cut, mark and sculpt the female body. Modelled in epoxy clay, and later carved and sanded, Just’s gently curved objects, comprising interpretations of mirrors, sculpture tools, surgical and gynaecological tools, tattoo tools and domestic tools will, under her nimble hands, be crafted in ways that reflect the bodies that have been altered by their touch.

This exhibition has been kindly supported by the City of Melbourne.
