Taggart Roberts – IN A LANDSCAPE

On Friday night we had Jude Taggart Roberts opening. Her show comprised of works on paper which were unravelled onto the floor of the space where people could interact with them. Taggart Roberts had taken the sheets of paper out into the Queensland Outback and submerged them in various water troughs and dams in different parts of the country. After a period of time, up to a week, she would return to site and pull up the paper, revealing coloured water  stains. On her return to Brisbane further mark making with charcoal was applied. The show is really beautiful and the audience loved that they could touch the works. One person suggested she submerge larger paper that replicated the size of an actual dam, and hang it up on the gallery wall. It is a raw and real representation of time, distance, water and earth and will be installed until mid October.

    Thanks Raygunlab for the installment of works. Always like the idea of rolling up paper and spreading work out on a flat surface. Evokes the sense of fencing when wire is bought or pulled out on a ‘spinning jenny’.The box of boundary fences are placed in a Japanese box which I found in the Brisbane floods. These fences include imprints from the Dingo Barrier Fence and boundaries of pastoral properties. The paper is from old machine calculator refills.
