Amala Groom – Have you seen my Emily?
New South Wales based conceptual artist Amala Groom presents her first institutional solo show Have you seen my Emily? at Casula Powerhouse in September 2017. The show is inspired by her attendance of a function… at the private midtown Manhattan home of former Australian Prime Minister Kevin Rudd and his wife Therese Rein, as a part of a delegate of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander advocates in May of 2016. Referencing Richard Hamilton’s iconic 1956 collage Just what is it that makes today’s homes so different, so appealing? Groom’s solo show will be realised across a body of work including a 4-channel video performance and text.
