Harriet Parsons: Domestic Science: Planework

12 April – 6 May 2000

Harriet Parsons is a young Melbourne-based artist whose exhibition Domestic Science: Planework, consists of sensual sculptures constructed from satin, wire and muslin. These beautiful and whimsical objects, based on natural forms such as single cell organisms, are suspended so that they float throughout the gallery space. In previous works, Parsons has embroidered intricate animal and skeleton shapes with the artists’ own hair. This exhibition continues her exploration of the beauty of scientific representations.
