When night comes

Susan Jowsey, Marcus Williams

When night comes is an illustrated catalogue from an art installation by Susan Jowsey and Marcus Williams at Artspace in Auckland, 6 November –22 December, 1996
(28pp publication with colour illustrations documenting the installation produced by the artist in its wake with essays by Jowsey, Williams and Miriam Harris.)

When night comesWhen Night Comes makes childhood palpable by engaging your senses. With ceilings and objects positioned at difficult heights, including a luminous yellow door of shrunken Alice IN Wonderland-like proportions. . . On the one hand the adult is addressed with items placed at their height, such as a pink cardigan and music box, which plays the syrupy refrain of Disney’s “When You Wish Upon A Star”. On the other hand, the tactile nature of this involvement and the summoning of the senses (including the fragrance of talcum powder), transports you to a state that everyone has experience: being a child. . . “
