Assemblage Geisha

Cindy Tonkin - January 23, 2004

Sturt Summer School in January 2004 I did assemblage with Peter King.

Here are some of the outputs.

We started the week with an excursion to the Moss Vale Tip. I picked up a ladder. The resultant “sculpture” lived in my backyard for more than 20 years. It eventually just rotted away, since the legs were from a piece of indoor furniture. That’s also where I found the singer sewing machine which became the centrepiece for the Patchwork and Stories exhibition.

The geisha went to people who bought during that exhibition. i have just one left. The geisha were made originally from a lampbase – I cut it in 3 and then quartered the bits. I thought they would be soldiers, but they turned out to be geisha. The object tells you what it wants to be.

That was a really hot summer too.

The gallery was not found!
