Exhibition pamphlet produced on the occasion of Fiona Abicare’s exhibition Rose Moon at West Space, Melbourne, 2019.
Abicare works across sculpture and site to explore diverse material histories. Influenced broadly by modernism and its interaction with art, design, architecture, film and fashion, her work absorbs and reflects cultural histories, personal memories and other embedded associations. Rose Moon explores the origins of the interior design style Shabby Chic in relation to art history and feminine aesthetics. Taking shape as a series of site-specific sculptures, Rose Moon considers the practice of the female home decorator as sculptor, painter and craft practitioner.
