'Do You Remember The Roses'


The performance ‘Do You Remember The Roses’ was staged on Friday 1 October 2021 in the artist’s home. Concurrently, a public event was held online to open This is Not Art, and as part of the public event, a film was presented which accompanied the performance. The following instructions were given to the audience.

‘Do You Remember The Roses’ is a performance work occurring in real-time, in the artist’s home. The audience will see the performance only in our minds. Consalvo describes this as the ‘echoing of imagination’. The film which accompanies this performance must commence at exactly 7:26pm.

About Lottie Consalvo


Lottie Consalvo works across painting, performance, video and sculpture. Her work explores the psychology of human experience, the imaginary and dreaming. Ideas surrounding desire, longing, loss and the ungraspable are present within her work. Often referencing nature, she parallels ungovernable natural phenomena with the human psyche.

In 2015, Consalvo was selected to be in residence with Marina Abramovic in Sydney as part of Kaldor Public Art Projects 30. In 2018, the artist had her first solo museum exhibition at Heide Museum of Modern Art in Victoria.
