Fibro Façade is an installation comprising eleven meticulous charcoal drawings of elements from common fibro housing and an architectural tape outline connecting them.
Catherine O’Donnell leaves the screen door ajar, pulls back the curtain, opens the window and shows the uneven lines of the venetian blinds to reveal that her renderings are equally about the occupants as they are about the structures that they call home.
O’Donnell’s installation was commissioned by Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre and is courtesy of May Space Gallery Sydney.
