PAPER #66
Sarah Hardacre - Behind The Times
22 May - 26 June 2021
Hardacre’s new collages offer us a cheeky yet plaintively nostalgic consideration of the provincial city postcard and the female magazine nude, developing the artist's practice of contrasting sexual and architectural hopes and dreams. Alongside individual new works, reproduction postcards are available at PAPER and elsewhere around the city for visitors to inscribe, post, add to, or take from the exhibition as they wish, offering the postcard in its truest nature – as a communicative artefact in transit, a missive on pleasure and place. Outside PAPER, new large-scale work will grace the exterior gallery wall for passers-by to enjoy and be tempted inside.
