JANET LILO: STATUS UPDATE

Te Uru are excited to present the first survey of Janet Lilo's practice. Janet Lilo is a renowned Avondale-based artist who is known for her experimental approaches to documenting the everyday. 

Te Uru are canvasing Lilo’s concerns and approaches in the survey exhibition Janet Lilo: Status Update. A phrase cribbed from Facebook, ‘Status Update’ refers to Lilo’s well known interest in social media as raw material, a self-aware use of a survey exhibition as validation — and indeed elevation — of an artist’s practice, as well as a description of how Lilo has treated the works in the exhibition.

Indeed, Janet Lilo: Status Update is not a traditional survey. Rather than simply re-showing past works, Janet has borrowed concepts, processes and technologies from previous works to create entirely new works that reflect back on and refine her concerns to date.

Janet Lilo: Status Update opens Saturday 28 May, 4-6pm.
