Presented by Art Ink Publishing & VAULT Magazine as part of Melbourne Art Book Fair
Artists Jahnne Pasco-White and Marian Tubbs will be at STATION for an afternoon of discussion as we celebrate the release of two new titles exploring each artist’s practice.
Marian Tubbs: we need privacy guys here too presents a collection of new and existing works in this wonderfully tactile new publication. Tubbs has established herself as one of Australia’s leading contemporary artists. This book is edited by Dana Kopel and features writing from curator of USC Art Gallery’s exhibition entitled ‘Marian Tubbs: we need privacy guys here too’ Hamish Sawyer, poet Holly Childs and academic Dr Nancy Lee.
Jahnne Pasco-White: Kin explores the ethereal and meditative work of artist Jahnne Pasco-White. The book Edited by N.A.J. Taylor documents the artist’s visual journey through pregnancy and life as a new parent, focusing on works produced during this period. Kin also features considered essays that explore the definitions and possibilities of ‘kinship’.
Jahnne-Pasco White (b. 1987) lives and works on Dja Dja Wurrung land and waters, in Chewton, Victoria. Jahnne Pasco-White’s expanded painting practice considers the intersections between materiality and temporality. Her work is characterised by the labouring of delicate supports. She is interested in the layers of authorship that are variously evidenced and concealed by the artist’s mark-making, as well as their continual processes of decay and renewal.
Marian Tubbs (b. 1983) lives and works on Bunjalung and Gubbi Gubbi/Kabi Kabi land. The work of Marian Tubbs traverses Internet, video and assemblage-based installation, transforming the everyday into a space of interrogation. Her broad research interests include vision technologies, poor materialities and language or text in art. Positioning objects and images in new or fluid contexts, Tubbs challenges contemporary notions of worth and value, and slows down accelerated modes of voyeurism and consumption.
