MARY MCFARLANE: Room Temperature

13 August – 9 October 2016

Mary McFarlane is a sculptor and installation artist who lives and works in Port Chalmers, Dunedin. Her exhibition history comprises numerous solo exhibitions, group shows, collaborations and public commissions.


Room Temperature presents a large scale sculptural installation that Mary McFarlane has been developing over a number of years. Wire-wove walls form two rooms containing furniture, objects, and embroideries; all of which have been handmade, altered or collected by the artist. Audiences are invited to navigate the perimeter and look through the walls of the structure. Room Temperature explores the complex nature of a long-term illness - signifying the emotions and experiences that arise on this universal journey.


We are very grateful to Dunedin Public Art Gallery for their assistance with this presentation.
