Louise Saxton: The Linen Project

Town Hall Gallery, 360 Burwood Road, Hawthorn
10/27/18 to 12/16/18

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. This new installation, created with the support of an artist in residence at St Vincent's Hospital, acknowledges the intrinsic role of linens in the healing and care of patients.
