Tai Snaith: A World of One's Own

Art Gallery of Ballarat, 40 Lydiard Street North, Ballarat Central, Victoria, 3350
Until 04 Aug 2019

This exhibition of mixed media works is based on a series of podcast conversations between artist Tai Snaith and mid-career and emerging artists whom she admires. The title refers to a 1929 essay, now a feminist classic, A Room of One’s Own by English author Virginia Woolf, in which Woolf articulates the need for women writers to be given space – literally, and in the mind – in order to be able to work.

In the relaxed, colloquial exchanges of the podcast, Snaith and her interviewees explored the shifts and similarities that artists face in their lives and artistic practices, attempting to break down the how and why of making art. Some of the rich topics covered in the two series include self-doubt, control, meaning, shame, risk, parenthood and radicalism.

Snaith has used these sessions as a springboard for a series of studio-based works responding to some of the themes emerging from the conversations. A World of One’s Own presents Snaith’s works alongside a selection of work by artists featured in the second series of the podcast including Megan Cope, Sanné Mestrom, Stanislava Pinchuk, Lucreccia Quintanilla and Esther Stewart.
