This month Margot Westhorpe graces the Quest Hawthorn Community Project Wall with her fabulous body of work titled, 'On the Wall'. Working with her ongoing interest in identity, Margot delivers a solo show of rich depth and refined execution. In an exploration of ethnicity and gender, and its influence on identity through our possessions, Margot plays with the signifiers we display on our walls.
Drawing from sources associated with the home - flying ducks on the wall, bookshelves of encyclopaedia, porcelain china - Margot deftly reworks and reimagines the hidden meanings and forms inherent in these familiar objects. The show has only just been open to the public from this morning and responses are already very positive, including the first sale of a work before lunch.
The exhibition launches, thanks to our generous sponsor Quest Hawthorn, this Saturday (7 June) from 2.00 to 4.00pm. You're warmly invited to help celebrate this great show with a glass of wine or beer and a nibble to eat. Warm your soul on a wintery Saturday afternoon and also catch a glimpse of the last weekend showing in the main galleries for 'The Act of Seeing'.
