Their practice embraces a wide variety of media including sculpture, photography, film, video, neon and works on paper in works that critically engage with the history and forms of modernist art and their relationship to everyday life, reconsidered through feminist, psychoanalytic, filmic and spatial discourses.

Works by Janet Burchill and Jennifer McCamley will be included in A Different Temporality, at Monash University Museum of Art, Caufield, for the 2011 Melbourne International Arts Festival.
A Different Temporality considers time as subject and metaphor in Australian feminist art practice from 1975 through to 1985.
A period when women artists were agitating for recognition in the broader Australian art community, this was a remarkable time of change both for women and for Australia as a whole. Politically diverse, A Different Temporality unearths the flash points of a powerfully influential period.
Encompassing time-based media such as performance, photography and film, this exhibition is a provocative series of intrusions from a time of uncommon artistic fecundity.
Curated by Dr Kyla McFarlane, the exhibition also includes works by Micky Allan, Bonita Ely, Sue Ford, Helen Grace, Lyndal Jones and Jenny Watson.
