The Cuckoo's Nest

Featuring new works from Beci Orpin, Siri Hayes, Lucy James, Dell Stewart, Kate and Jessie Tucker, Ellequa Martin and Tai Snaith. Curated by Tai Snaith.

In most bird species, the female builds and feathers the nest before laying her eggs. In the case of The Cuckoo, however, she simply lays her egg's in another bird's nest. This idea of hijacking someone else's space is in some ways similar to what we do as artists. We make personal objects, images and ideas and  they often end up in someone else's home and life. In The Cuckoo's Nest a group of seven artists will be treating Linden a little like a display home for a new way of living with art.

The Cuckoo's Nest takes a look at domesticity and creative living through psychedelic coloured glasses. This is the kind of home where you might find birds living in the loungeroom, inedible rainbow feasts and mushroom tea ceremonies.

Some of my bits and pieces on the living room floor, in readiness for install tomorrow.

July 12- August 11 at Linden Centre for Contemporary Arts. Opening night- July 12, 6pm. Linden Centre for Contemporary Art 26 Acland Street St. Kilda
