After Mrs Mills mixes domestic and artistic labour. It directly references two works made by the artists that have had the most profound influence on my practice; Spanish dance (1978) by Trisha Brown’s and Café Muller (1978) by Pina Bausch. It also references the music of Mrs Mills, another hardworking woman, who my mother would play over the speakers in the memorial hall where she ran her indoor market.

After Mrs Mills was commissioned by curator Amy Voris for A Shrine to Women’s Work, which brings together works from eleven artists who have reflected upon matrilineal influences in their own working / playing lives. Such influences include the work / play of mothers, grandmothers and great-grandmothers and also the ‘grandmothers’ of each artist’s artform(s) – or artistic lineages. Each contributor has made something that incorporates selected aspects of this embodied and relational history
