Temptation To Co-Exist Janet Burchill and Jennifer McCamley

Published by Heide Museum of Mocern Art, Melbourne, 2019, 104 pages (colour & b/w ill.), 21 × 26 cm, English

Price: €12

Working together since the early 1980s, Janet Burchill and Jennifer McCamley have developed an expansive framework of formal and thematic concerns drawing broadly on the histories of art and design, film, literature and cultural theory. Influenced by feminism, and applying an appreciation and critique of modernism, they make visually stunning artworks across an ever-expanding repertoire of mediums—from painting and sculpture, photography and printmaking, to neon light and textile works.

This publication accompanies Australian multidisciplinary artist Nicholas Mangan’s survey exhibition Limits to Growth. The exhibition and book bring together four of Mangan’s most significant works of the past seven years, alongside a new commission. The works in the show tackle narratives from his own geographical region—Asia Pacific, in which his home country of Australia plays a colonial role—and weaves them into a bigger picture to take into account the global economy, resource extraction, and the ultimate power of the sun. Featuring an in-depth series of conversations between the artist and the Barcelona-based curatorial collective Latitudes, and essays by Ana Teixeira Pinto and Helen Hughes, this publication is richly illustrated with documentation of Mangan’s artworks and historical source material.
