Hard Feelings, The Honeymoon Suite Melbourne AU  (2018)

The Honeymoon Suite is pleased to announce the opening of Hard Feelings on Thursday 3 May, 6–8pm. Hard Feelings includes work by Katherine Botten, Rea Burton, Anastasia Klose, Saskia Leek, Natasha Matila-Smith, Jenny Watson and Kaylene Whiskey and is curated by Serena Bentley.

Hard Feelings will be the final exhibition presented at The Honeymoon Suite prior to its permanent closure in June 2018.

Hard Feelings features work by a group of Australian and New Zealand artists who aren’t afraid to get personal. Anastasia Klose’s confessional drawings reveal the artist’s innermost thoughts without compromise, Kaylene Whiskey inserts her favourite female pop icons into distinctly Australian landscapes, while Rea Burton blithely contests the objectification of women’s bodies in deliberately garish, ‘bad taste’ paintings. Spanning installation, drawing, painting and the moving image, this group of seven emerging and established artists interweave autobiography and fiction. Together, they expose intimate revelations, daydreams and hard truths.
