This exhibition brings London artists, Julie Ann and Julia Maddison, to use the floor of the gallery as one giant scrapbook – a display of images and objects; specially made, found or collected.
The installation portrays the dialogue between the artists, and their commonality – but also how they find themselves at odds with each other in their artistic methods and other aspects of their lives. The dialogue also focuses on the wider discussion about women; what changes have we seen since the right to vote for women a hundred years ago? We can celebrate the fact that we’re allowed to be indiscreet; we can shout; we don’t have to hide.
‘The title of the show, The Sisters of Indiscretion, came to us after a visit to a local convent, St. Saviour’s in Queensbridge Road. We were filled with admiration for the members of this community – but, obviously, we are not nuns ourselves; the installation is a celebration of our freedoms and raise questions about our choices as artists and middle-aged women. The photographs, drawings, notes, scraps and seeming fripperies will strike a chord with the careful viewer.’
