Fabric of Botany


Directed by Joe Shemesh.
Classification: E, 75 mins.
Country: Tasmania.


A film, slideshow and talk about, local artist, Deborah Wace’s recent Churchill Fellowship. This local artist was given access to reinterpret the botanical specimens and print collections located in Paris, Florence, and Kew herbarium, from the D'Entrecasteaux and Baudin expeditions to Tasmania, into original contemporary cultural motifs for art and fabric design.

The gardens, architecture, interviews and museum exhibitions all made this journey a fascinating experience, captured by Tasmanian Filmmaker, Joe Shemesh, who accompanied Deborah to document this work.

Come and see a selection from her travels and the Tasmanian context from which her artwork grows. The session will be followed by an opportunity to see her work displayed in the Screening Room.
