Natalya Hughes and Tulleah Pearce

In Conversation

30 July 2022
1.00PM–2.00PM

Can we use the talking cure to solve society’s ‘problem’ with women?

Join artist Natalya Hughes in conversation with exhibition curator, Tulleah Pearce to unpack the ideas and development of this newly commissioned installation.

The Interior invites audiences into an exaggerated consultation room playfully furnished for psychoanalysis. This immersive installation combines sculptural seating, richly patterned soft furnishings, and uncanny object d’art, nestled around a hand-painted mural to generate a stimulating space to unpack our collective and unconscious biases.

Guest Info
  • Natalya Hughes’s multidisciplinary practice is concerned with decorative and ornamental traditions and their associations with the feminine, the body and excess. Through painting, textiles, sculpture and installation, her recent bodies of work investigate the relationship between modernist painters and their anonymous women subjects. Using the life and work of major twentieth-century male artists Willem de Kooning and Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, as well archival case studies of Sigmund Freud, Hughes seeks to examine society’s ‘problems’ with women and the fraught associations that have ultimately determined them.
