Works on Paper, Installation this present installation, she invites others to enter the space - to be part of the work - revealing, along the way, that power and gentleness need not be incompatible.

In 1989 Grazia Gunn, newly appointed Director of the Australian Centre for Contemporary Art gave me the opportunity to create the first of her 'ACCA Experiments'. All three rooms at ACCA were to be made available to express whatever was of "contemporary concern" to me as an artist - the only stipulation being that everything was to be works on paper and had to be made in the galleries themselves during the two weeks prior to the show.
