An Artist’s Response, space studio & gallery, whanganui

February 17, 2017

I’m taking part in this show – part of whanganui’s La Fiesta – opening event tonite.



Show contains artistic response’s to anonymous 6 word memoirs written by local
women as part of the 2016 festival
Here’s and image of my piece: (note: it contains bad language
– in my defence it’s a quote)




Name: Catherine Macdonald

Title: FUCK OFF NOW!/please don’t leave

Year: 2017

Medium: Book – double sided

Price: $ 30.00 each

Dimensions: 90mm x 63mm x 15mm (h x w x d)

Memoir: FUCK OFF NOW! please don’t leave

Statement: FUCK OFF NOW! please don’t leave. For me these six words sum up
how contradictory love and relationships can be.  How in one person can be
someone you never want to see again but also be afraid to live without.
These seemingly opposing thoughts can exist back to back.  I’ve chosen to
create a small palm sized book that contains scenes from daily life, the
little things, the discarded, the overlooked, that create the memories
and reminders of time spent.
