Louise Saxton: The Linen Project

Exhibition and Shows

27 Oct 2018 to 16 Dec 2018

The latest exhibition at Hawthorn’s Town Hall Gallery pays homage to past lives and labour with a new, immersive installation created by Louise Saxton. The Linen Project is showing from Saturday 27 October until Sunday 16 December.

Melbourne artist Louise Saxton has been collecting domestic linens since 1988 and has been extracting and reconstructing the embroidery and lace from the linen for more than a decade to build several major bodies of work, including two and three-dimensional assemblages.

For The Linen Project Louise has created an installation with the support of an 18-month artist in residence program through Caritas Christi at St Vincent’s hospital in Kew. The work acknowledges the intrinsic role of linens in the healing and care of patients in a hospital setting.
