#25 – Tess Mehonoshen: 'Conservation is futile'

House Conspiracy's Jonathan O'Brien sits down with Tess Mehonoshen to discuss decay, writing papers, documentation, and the new necessity of incorporating digital with analogue.

Tess Mehonoshen examines the contemporary phenomena of transient living and the ensuing disconnection that occurs with loss of place. Seeking to mimic and disrupt the separation between urban/rural through material ambiguity, categorisations of ‘place’ are questioned. The sculptures remain in a continual state of decay, eroding and disintegrating upon contact.

#24 – Holly Anderson on how to 'win the game of art'

House Conspiracy's Jonathan O'Brien sits down with Holly Anderson to talk about the 'art-act'.

Holly Anderson works principally with painting and drawing mediums with an emphasis on theatrical installation practice. Her strong concerns for narrative, simulation and notions of femininity are found continually in performed reconstructions of a continuing series of mythic or autobiographic events, neither of which is privileged or defined. Between a concern for the theatrical, traditional materials and immersive installation, playful interactions between her work and the viewer are warmly invited.

#23 – April Giblin: 'Their stories become the colours'

House Conspiracy's Jonathan O'Brien sits down with April Giblin to chat about colour, queer communities, and the respectful processes that surround telling others' stories.

April Giblin experiments with portraiture by using colours to evoke emotion to tell a story. Her art style flirts and blurs the lines between Fauvism, Colour Field, Abstraction and Portraiture. Aprils’ work carries an underlying theme about reality and the human condition. In her recent work, April is exploring gender and sexuality by documenting people and their experiences in the 21st century.
