Sarah Goffman, I am with you, 2017


I Am with You by Sarah Goffman, 2017, permanent marker on cardboard, 700 x 700 cm, Monash University Museum of Modern Art, viewed 13 March 2022, https://www.monash.edu/muma/collection/100-works-of-the-monash-university-collection/100-works/sarah-goffman#_edn1


This huge work by Sarah Goffman was commissioned for the 2017 exhibition, Unfinished Business at the Australian Centre for Contemporary Art. The use of unconventional materials and media is noteworthy. The artist has selected and copied slogans from the 2017 Women's March in Washington. In her artist statement she reflects on the process of copying and arranging and draws parallels with the Buddhist meditative practice of copying religious texts. She thus plays on the tension between reverence and irreverence in the work.
