“I Know How Hard It Can Get” is an exhibition by Taylor Reudavey featuring a multimedia installation that chronicles unemployment and welfare policy in contemporary Australia. A triad of conflicting voices strive to both question and uphold the ideological convictions that have shaped the current Jobactive program. “I Know How Hard It Can Get” examines the relationship between authority and authenticity, co-optation and appropriation, and sympathy and contempt.

Taylor Reudavey (b.1994) is a multimedia artist, writer and performer from Perth, Western Australia. She graduated from Curtin University with Honours in 2015 and has exhibited with The Hive Art Space, Free Range Gallery, the City of Perth’s Grand Lane Light Locker Art Space, and the Victoria Park Centre for the Arts. She is currently the Artist in Residence at Curtin University’s School of Design and Art and will be featured in Geraldton Regional Art Gallery’s upcoming WORLDLINE exhibition. “I Know How Hard It Can Get” is her third solo show.

Moana Project Space is an artist-run initiative in the heart of the Perth CBD showcasing innovative contemporary practice on a national scale since 2012.

Taylor Reudavey: I Know How Hard It Can Get opens 6pm Friday September 8 2017.
