Hello virtual world! I have had a short hiatus from blog-life as the last few months have been extremely busy. Back on board now with a few exciting projects coming up….
Firstly you will notice I have changed my name. No longer working under Jemimah Davis, but my married name Jemimah Dodd! Fortunately all of my contact details (email, web address, signature) look the same – JEMIMAH.D!
I have been working on various jobs for the last few months including casual work at the Anne and Gordon Samstag Museum of Art, my usual FELTspace commitments and a short term gig with Mossgreen Auction House who came over from Melbourne to sell off the Warren and Bunty Bonython estate. Most recently I have taken on the Project Manager role for a Pom Pom (Carclew) Pilot project with Swallowcliffe Primary, as well as maintaining my usual role as artist assistant and programming assistant for our Saturday and School Holidays Pom Pom program. More about Pom Pom here -https://carclew.com.au/Program/pom-pom ……and a picture of the wonderful collaborative creation made by the children and artist Kel Mocilnik below.
COMING UP IN JULY : I am working on a new work for my first interstate exhibition at Constance ARI in Hobart, Tasmania. The show titled ‘Dollop V1’ is a new video installation that is the preliminary investigations for a larger body of work that I will exhibit in the CACSA Project Space in December 2014. Some studio/bathtub experiment shots of the video production below….
AUGUST: Throughout August I am very excited to have have 3 of my “Silicone Nozzle” light artworks selected to be in the Globelight 2014 exhibition in Melbourne. This is a link to the artists who have so far been announced and some profiles of their work. http://www.globelight.com.au/2014-artists/
MENTORSHIP: I was also very fortunate to recently receive funding from the Helpmann Academy to assist with a Mentorship with Perth based artist Tanya Schultz (Pip& Pop). Tanya and I are currently discussing a lot of exciting options, ideas and plans to aim for during the mentorship. Tanya’s work has inspired and influenced my own ideas and motivations for many years now and I have relished the opportunity to work with her in the past during the Come Out Festival 2013. I feel very lucky to be able to work with her again. To gain some of her wisdom and guidance at this stage of my career will be invaluable. Stay tuned for details. http://www.pipandpop.com.au
