Project on-going Home Sweet Home – a Memorial is a memorial for families affected generationally by the legacy of war. Continuing until 2018 it incorporates the theory of ‘post memory’ or shadow memory. By collating women and children’s stories, photos and mementos, I am creating a library of unique artist’s books to re-frame the history of war acknowledging its on-going impact on families. Home Sweet Home has been extensively exhibited : 2016 Australian National Veterans Arts Museum Sofitel Melbourne 2015 – fortyfive downstairs, Deakin Edge Melbourne Conversations, Anzac Centenary Peace Coalition Forum 11, Geelong Forum, Sinclair Gallery, Geelong Grammar. 2014 – Vasey House Bundoora, the RSL State Conference, Legacy Widows Group Ashburton, Kildara Centre, Malvern. 2013 – RSL Vasey Care, Austin Health, Heidelberg Repatriation Hospital, Tacit Contemporary Art, Vasey House Bundoora – Armistice Day Commemoration 2012, Northern Exposure Festival Darebin; On Compassion, Uniting Church Northcote.
