Strangers in my Palace

Helen Seiver

17 August to 22 September 2013

I have a fundamental belief in the strength and power of women that is and has been drawn from the everyday, civil and domestic experience.  The development and substance of the work is informed by the five generations of resilient West Australian women who have preceded me.

Reflecting the essential part women have played in determining the nature, shape and structure of contemporary female roles and identity, the work functions as a review of social and cultural values. It also attempts to find processes which investigate and explore cultural issues from a female perspective.
