Making do rhymes with poo is a major new multimedia installation with video and live performance by eminent Australian artist Justene Williams. For the entire opening week, Williams will conduct a durational live performance in the gallery, using her own body to transform the space through menial ‘work’. This exciting new work addresses conscious and unconscious forms of labour undertaken by the body. The title reads as both as a way of ‘making do’ with what’s at one’s disposal (a nod to the artist’s working-class upbringing and time spent with her father in his wrecking yard) as well as to describe the automatic labour of ‘making’ with the body.
