Amanda Bromfield

The Nun in the Night Gown

Northern NSW based artist Amanda Bromfield marks the 100th anniversary of the curious story of young nun, Brigid Partridge (Sister Mary Ligouri), who in 1920 ran away from Mount Erin Convent, Wagga. This simple act became a national scandal in a game of religious politics that played out all the way to the NSW Supreme Court in 1921. Installation incorporates ceramics, found objects and video performance.
