 Five Minutes   thisplace. (2014)  thisplace. is a new media series exploring the realities of motherhood.  A mother is camouflaged in each portrait, and the sitters have titled their own portrait.  I created this body of work to open an honest (and non-judgemental) conversation about what it's really like to become and be a mother.  All the works were informed by the anonymous responses and thoughts I received from mums.  This photographic series was originally shown at Town Hall Gallery (Hawthorn) with 2 performance films, an interactive installation, emergency sweets for parents, plus colouring-in, toys and a black board for the kids.
       
     
 conflict. January theme: LIGHT   onefourfour (2014)  onefourfour is a year long project I created and curated where twelve Australian women artists create one artwork per month for one year.  Each artist chooses a theme for a month that we all work to and the results are posted on the blog with artist features.  I took part in 2014, the first time I ran the project, and these are the works I created.

 Mrs. Collier   A shoe box full of dresses (2011)  These dresses were made by friends of my grandpa: Mrs. Collier and Mrs. Burrows. Each Christmas my mum and aunty were given a shoebox of them, made from material off-cuts. This tradition was reignited once my sister and I had dolls, too. The dresses were made to fit everyone's dolls; my mum thinks great-aunty Ivey sneakily took the measurements and gave them to Mrs. Collier and Mrs. Burrows to make patterns from.  I photographed the dresses as I found them: complete with wrinkles, stains and traces of writing. I like that you can see the lives they have lead as the dresses hold so much history within their stitches. Everyone will find their own stories and meanings within them.

 Hannah Quinlivan  www.thiswildsong.com.au    This Wild Song  This Wild Song is a life long project I created in 2013 to celebrate the wealth of talented artists practicing in Australia and address gender equality in the arts.  It's a series of conceptual photographic portraits of Australian women artists who have a unique voice.  The theme of the portraits is for the artist to become a part of their work but also capture an honest portrait of the sitter.  The portraits and accompanying interviews are featured on the TWS website, the portraits are being exhibited, and once I've completed 150 portraits I'll publish a book.  I'll also be hosting forums for the public with panels of artists from the project.  To see the complete list of participating artists, read the artist's fascinating interviews, and join the mailing list go to  www.thiswildsong.com.au
