Exhibitions / Ned Kelly's Kitchen

09.03.2011 to 27.03.2011

This exhibition of sustainable sculptural works constructed out of found and recycled materials explore the role of women within the home.Ned Kelly's Kitchen has been inspired by the current climate of celebrity chef worship amidst an overproduction of TV cooking programmes and competitions. While many men love to cook, the kitchen can be a battleground for time poor women who feel pressured to emulate the unrealistic image of the competent and confident multitasking household goddess. The materiality of the works imply a sense of impossibility and are a metaphor for this struggle.
