KEEP YOUR MEMORIES ON THE FRONT LAWN
JENNIFER ROOKE – HALEY ROSE – RUBY KNIGHT
Keep Your Memories on the Front Lawn reflects on the stories and experiences of three young female artists and friends navigating life in their early 20s; a time of share house living, Centrelink income, new romances, obsessions and lingering hangovers. Details of clothing, dwellings, relationships, friendships, conversations and pop culture become essential building blocks in recovering shared memories of nights out, parties and gigs; “what was I wearing?”, “where were we going?”, “who was there?” and “how did we even get home that night?” The future is an abstract concept which can only be seen through humourous projections of unlikely characters and situations. Through their work, the artists, Ruby Knight, Jennifer Rooke and Haley Rose, piece together real and imagined scenarios to address questions about memory and create mementos of a shared world.
