'The Sisters of Indiscretion' is a dialogue between two women; a myriad of images and objects will illustrate the freedoms and complexities of their lives as artists, celebrating the centenary of the first time women were given the vote.

About

London artists, Julie Ann and Julia Maddison, will use a wall of the gallery as a giant scrapbook, displaying images and objects; specially made, collected or found. The installation will revolve around the dialogue between the two artists, who have much in common – but also find themselves at odds with each other in their artistic practices and most other aspects of their lives. This dialogue is also part of a much wider discussion about women; what has changed in the past hundred years since we were given the vote? We are celebrating the fact that we are now allowed to be indiscreet; we can shout, we don’t have to hide. "The title of the show, The Sisters of Indiscretion, came to us after a visit to a local convent, St. Saviour’s in Queensbridge Road. We were filled with admiration for the members of this community – but, obviously, we are not nuns ourselves; the installation will be a celebration of our freedoms, and raise questions about our choices as artists and middle-aged women. The photographs, drawings, notes, scraps and seeming fripperies will strike a chord with the careful viewer." Julie Ann and Julia Maddison will also have an instore residency at the Greatart store, Kingsland Road on 27th, 28th and 29th April.
