Deborah Eddy Artist Statement

 

Deborah Eddy employs sculpture, currently in the form of craftivism (craft + activism), and video performances in her work to speak of feminist issues. She favours a hi vis palette and utilises building supplies and safety equipment juxtaposed with feminine fabrics to make domestic items such as tea pots, saucepans, quilts and costumes for her video performances. Eddy is currently undertaking her Visual Arts Doctorate at Queensland College of Art (QCA). She holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts and attained First Class Honours also at QCA.

Eddy’s exhibitions include many group shows, most notably, inclusion in Regional Gallery shows at Pine Rivers Art Gallery and Caboolture Art Gallery. In 2018 she attended a Residency at the Feminist Art Collective in Toronto. In 2019 one of her videos was shown in a group exhibition in New York. Also, in 2019 she was a finalist in the Moreton Bay Art Prize and this work was subsequently acquired by Moreton Bay Regional Council Art Collection. Her recent solo exhibition at POP Gallery focused on women’s invisible and unrelenting domesticity. This has been an important milestone in her Doctoral journey.

      Hi Jamie Thank you for reaching out to me. I actually have just got a job at MBRC as a galleries and museum assistant. I commence on October 6. It looks like my induction is on October 12. I would help out otherwise. You can email me on deborah.eddy@griffithuni.edu.au. Cheers
      Deborah
