Dear Agnes
by Ainslie Peverell
Ainslie is a project-based artist that has seen her achieve a collaborative ‘Sustainability Award’ through the Greater City of Dandenong in 2019 for an environmental mural project. Ainslie was the lead within the project’s publicity team. Ainslie is studying a Bachelor of Creative Arts (Visual Arts) at Deakin University. Ainslie is interested in messaging in public space, and the relationship to truth and knowledge through the use of many different and considered visual mediums. Her current project in Victoria extends to a public art internship in 2022 with the Hobson’s Bay City Council, with a thoughtful gesture to New York’s Agnes Denes. The project is named ‘Dear Agnes’ and will be in February 2023 at the Truganina Explosives Reserve.

About this work
The Truganina Explosives Reserve is home to lots of different species grassing in the grasslands in this south western corridor of Victoria with home to many different species of tall grasses, herbs and flowers. This exhibition is a thoughtful gesture to the work of Agnes Denes in Altona, called A Forest for Australia (1998), a work consisting of 6000 trees of endangered species (Agnes Denes, 2022). Our temporary exhibition called ‘Dear Agnes’ will be held in February 2023. The work of New York’s Agnes Denes confronts many environmental and philosophical issues and Dear Agnes is a celebration of Dene’s evolution in ecology.
