Join 2018 Frances Hodgkins Fellow Louise Menzies as she talks about her exhibition 'In an orange my mother was eating', on it's opening day.

Louise Menzies is interested in things as they are in the world. In this exhibition, her delicate appreciation for what already exists has materialised as a series of distinct works made during her year-long Fellowship and subsequent engagement with the Hocken Collections.

The playful exhibition title, In an orange my mother was eating, forms the opening line of “Where was I born?” a poem published by Joanna Margaret Paul in 1981. As two children recount to Paul where they might have come from (in a mirror; hot fire; in the cake tin; in the earth; in my bones), we are reminded of all the objects—and images of objects—around us that form our unique experiences of life.
