Bijou: An installation by Stephen Bowers

Fermoy House | 30 July - 5 October 2019

SALA (South Australian Living Artists) Festival 2019

To distribute works within The David Roche Foundation’s collection at Fermoy House is an opportunity for both revelation and concealment. Like Fermoy itself, discernment and association, as well as surprise, suggestion and curiosity are at play. Disguise and detection are also afoot, for distributed amongst Fermoy’s treasures my eclectic contributions might appear in open view or reside quietly in odd corners. Some works speak to objects in the collection, others uninvolved with such dialogue.

Stephen Bowers, July 2019

Viewed as part of tours of Fermoy House.

Fermoy House open Tuesday – Saturday by booked tour only at 10am, 12noon and 2pm.
