Sarah Crowest #straponpaintings

Paintings take the form of apparel in this interactive installation, which is part of Sarah crowEST’s ongoing inquiry into how art production can be energetic, fluid and potent while treading lightly upon the earth.

Art Exhibition previously on at Heide Museum of Modern Art in Victoria, Australia.
From Saturday 27 February 2016 to Sunday 29 May 2016

Visitors are invited to try on aprons made of Belgian artist’s linen that are encountered as minimalist abstract canvases hanging on the gallery wall, then post photographs of themselves on Instagram. The geometric forms and texts painted onto the aprons and accompanying accessories are inspired by a variety of sources; from a series of little known diagrammatic images by the avant garde Swiss artist Sophie Taeuber-Arp, to artworks in the Heide collection by Australian practitioners such as Kerrie Poliness, Madonna Staunton, Janet Dawson and Sidney Nolan.

Thought-provoking, inventive and playful, the exhibition reflects crowEST’s continuing interest in materiality, sustainability, ergonomics and feminism.
