BROOKE FERGUSON - ARTIST IN RESIDENCE - OPEN STUDIO

Monday 19 April 2021

Brooke Ferguson is concluding her time as artist in residence at Sculptors Qld. This residency has been an opportunity for Ferguson to engage with the craft of furniture making, and create new work.

Please join us at this open studio event with the artist on Monday evening, April 19, from 5:30pm. The event will display Brooke's furniture pieces made from Clement Meadmore's book, 'How to make furniture without tools' (1975) . These pieces will be accompanied by electronic musak developed specifically for this project.

Brooke Ferguson (b. 1989) is an artist from Brisbane who has been living and working in Brussels. Her work is shaped by a fascination with crossovers in art, music, literature and marginal histories relating to the ongoing critique of Modernism.

Clement Meadmore (1929-2005) was an Australian-American sculptor best known for his massive outdoor steel sculptures. He studied aeronautical engineering and industrial design at the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology, and after graduating designed furniture for several years before creating his first welded sculptures. Meadmore was also an amateur drummer and jazz enthusiast.
