About

6 February – 3 March 2019

Opening Wednesday 6 February 5.30pm 

 

Jo Chew is kicking off Despard Gallery’s exhibition year with her solo show The Wanderer, the Fool, and the Refuge.

“The Wanderer, The Fool, and The Refuge is a body of work that engages with personal and universal concerns of brokenness and restoration, the need for refuge, and the precarity and transience of that refuge. The act of collaging fragments and images together is central to my practice as a compositional tool, and as a process which is analogous to restoration or mending.  Collage, in its ability to cross borders and take imagery and references from elsewhere, mobilises the nomadic or wanderer as emblematic of contemporary life.” – Jo Chew 2019
