Exhibition:

"I Just Don't Know What To Do With Myself"
Kate Just


Opening: Thursday 18 October, 6-8pm
Dates: 18 October-3 November 2007

'I Just Don’t Know What To Do With Myself' is based loosely on the Greek tale of Arachne, a proud braggart who claims she can out-weave Athena, but fails. Ashamed, Arachne hangs herself, but Athena both saves and further punishes her by turning Arachne into a spider and her noose into a web. A cautionary tale of a complex power struggle between women, it explores multiple emotions of pride, shame, and empathy. In Just’s knitted sculptural interpretation, Arachne is part woman and part spider, face down on the floor with flowing synthetic locks and glossy painted mannequin hands poking through ripped knitted skin. Titled after Dusty Springfield’s melodramatic lament, she is positioned in the centre of a dark fully curtained room, with only a spotlight to illuminate her tragic reckoning.

Funded by the City of Melbourne through their 2007 Arts Grants Program
