In Sandra Bridie b. 19--, Eight Fictions, artist Sandra Bridie presents eight fictional artists who bear her own name, but with different birthdates, imagined into the Melbourne art landscape of the 20th and 21st centuries. The artists are presented via interviews and documentation of their artwork. The oeuvres of the eight artists represented here include: photography, conceptual art, sculpture, performance, crafting, curatorship and text-based work. The artists range in age and ability from emerging artists to a grand dame of Melbourne abstract art. By presenting often tragi-comic characters who have to deal with good fortune, destiny, disaster, boredom, malaise, envy, distractions and lack of faith, Sandra hopes to present the artist as a recognisable creature in a familiar locale or milieu.
