If Pain Persists: Linde Ivimey Sculpture
3 NOVEMBER 2012 – 24 MARCH 2013 - University of Queensland Art Museum
Linde Ivimey’s sculpture is often technically complex and intricate, utilising skills from welding to cooking, weaving, wood-sculpting, and sewing, all adapted to create objects with an intense personal resonance. The emotional impact of her figures and animals is multiplied by her use of materials – skin, bone, fabric, hair, wax, gemstones, teeth, and other personal and found objects. The exhibition includes works from 2001 to 2012, with themes ranging from ‘Saints and sinners’ to ‘Child’s play’ and ‘Self portraits’. A new series is inspired by the 100th Anniversary of Sir Douglas Mawson’s expedition to Antarctica.
The first major publication on the artist’s work, Linde Ivimey, will be launched with the exhibition.
