editor’s letter

Ground control to Major Tom: how long are we going to be in this holding pattern for? The one thing we can count on at the moment is that we can’t count on anything. Plans are made and moved, travel is a rollercoaster of bookings followed by cancellations and paperwork to get refunds sorted, weddings and, ever so sadly, funerals are via Zoom and lots of businesses and individuals are struggling with uncertainty and the feeling of deja vu day after day. Never was Groundhog Day so relevant. Want to learn ice sculpture? Now’s the time. On my eclectic list of diversions when not reading homes magazines: Gabor Maté’s work on trauma, Sharon Stone The Beauty of Living Twice, yoga with Adriene and Benji, Sontag: Her Life, The New York…

1 GABRIELLE ‘COCO’ CHANEL certainly tailored her own bespoke path through life. She regularly defied societal conventions throughout her 87 years ensuring her enduring independence, both financial and personal, through hard work, boundless creativity, some questionable collaborations and most memorably with her elegant and restrained fashion designs that liberated many of her contemporaries around the world.

CANBERRA SUPER MODELS The absurdities of gender performance are laid bare by British artist Sarah Lucas with her comically contorted take on the reclining nude. A continuation of her ‘Bunny’ series begun in 1997 – in which recumbent dolls with limp, splayed limbs of stuffed hosiery gave a darkly surreal satire of sexual objectification – recent sculptures such as the Converse-clad Peeping Thomasina (left) are promoted to plinths in a tangled display of hyperbolic hauteur. The fleshy figures star in the artist’s first Australian survey, part of the National Gallery’s Know My Name program. Until April 18. knowmyname.nga.gov.au ADELAIDE HEAL COUNTRY! From the tip of Cape York to the heart of the APY Lands and beyond, this year’s Tarnanthi festival spans the continent in bringing together a diverse assembly of contemporary Aboriginal and Torres Strait…
