Art Martha. Janet Meaney.

Canberra based Janet Meaney is soon to exhibit work for her PhD. Janet's performative works are eye-opening, with the audience feeling just a little uneasy watching on from the sidelines. I've been witness to several of Janet's works including a memorable piece where she fixed an ox tongue to her own and proceeded to sweep the floor of a local pub that was hosting opening drinks. I loved it, and judging by the looks on people's faces, few knew how to react. And that's Janet's charm really, how do we deal with the absurd?
