This event has passed Get tickets

Event description


Artist Shahroud Ghanini provides an artist talk in relation to her exhibition  'Labour of Entanglements', and discusses her practice where she applies a feminist lens when creating her artwork.  A thoughtful and interesting discussion for International Womens Day.


Shahroud Ghahani’s ‘Labour of Entaglements’ is presented in Ridge St Window Gallery from March 1 until 15 April 2024

The exhibition Labour of Entanglement is a fantastical enquiry into personal and contemporary portrayals of female archetypes.  The artworks delve into themes of motherhood and maternity through a surrealist and feminist lens.

The series explores diverse representations of the female body and its relation to the child through allegory and recognisable symbolism. The work highlights both the ordinary lives of mothers and children across cultures, as well as the spiritual and religious role of the mother, through visual references to Christian icons and the divinity of the Virgin Mary. Together the artworks are an ode to the mother in her sacred state and her sacrifices.


Shahroud has been an artist in residence at our Primrose Park Artists Studios in Cremorne. A busy 2023 saw her work shown in First Draft Gallery, Gosford Art Prize, Australian Contemporary Watercolour Prize, Fisher’s Ghost Art Prize and more. She has started 2024 as the winner of local artist award in Grace Cossington Smith Biennale Art Prize.
