Fleur MacDonald - Based on a True Story

Based on a true story is an exhibition that explores and pays homage to the traditional craft of doily making. Inspired by the legacy of historical Kandos local Lucy Williams, artist Fleur MacDonald reimagines this traditional practice of doily making by painting renditions of traditional doilies on found domestic wooden serving bowls. Through this the process, the artist’s intention is to highlight the importance of this craft, and to emphasise the potential for past handicrafts and their associated intricacies, to be lost through time. This is a HomeGround exhibition, produced by the WPCC and supported by Orana Arts.

Curators Pick - Mariam talks about the piece of work, the artists inspiration and how as a curator the piece evoked a strong memory when curating the installation at WPCC's Home Ground Exhibition.
