For Mary

2019
For Mary is an exploration of the life of my Great Grandmother, Mary Roberts Clarke, who was born in 1901, and lived in Melbourne. The work draws on Mary’s divorce papers to explore the life of working-class women at the time and acknowledge the silences and historical absences in the archiving of women's stories. I have worked to recover and interpret Mary’s narrative by using her archive as my inspiration, in an attempt to participate in rewriting the histories of women in my family.
