09novAll DayFringe Westside: Sew Suburb - Banal - Jesse Deane


Event Details

Event runs 11th – 30th September

This work, rendered in needlepoint, pays homage to Melbourne\’s west. Suburbia is often seen as “banal” and “boring”, but this work will highlight the beauty in the banality of these fading social landscapes.

Deane takes the mundane flatness of the subjects and breathes new life into these gems in the most surprising of ways.

Deane’s work evokes feelings of memory and connection, both through the medium and the imagery which reminds people to look more closely at the landscape in which they live. At the same time, audience members are drawn into the photo realistic stitched images to take a closer look at the technique, often surprised that the work is, in fact, textile.

Nowhere does Fringe like Melbourne\’s inner west!
