The Sisters of Indiscretion

Hundred Years Gallery


London artists, Julie Ann and Julia Maddison, have used the floor of the gallery as a giant scrapbook, displaying images and objects; specially made, collected or found.  The installation revolves around the dialogue between the two artists, who have much in common – but also find themselves at odds with each other in their artistic practices and most other aspects of their lives.  This dialogue is also part of a much wider discussion about women; what has changed in the past hundred years since women were given the vote?  We are celebrating the fact that we are now 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.’
