Narelle Jubelin's major 1998 installation work, 'Case No: T961301', is being exhibited at the Australian Centre for Contemporary Art, Melbourne, as part of the exhibition, The Biography of Things. "Artists use objects, archives and collections to trace the labyrinthine stories that live behind things. The Biography of Things reveals narratives of loss, intrigue, histories and people, from the objective to the subjective. Working as if detectives, the artists in this exhibition bring a lively approach to object encounters, revealing much about what time has concealed or forgotten." The exhibition is curated by Juliana Engberg, Annika Kristensen and Hannah Mathews. Jubelin's 'Case No: T961301' traces the sale in the 1990s of British fighter jets to Indonesia for aggression against East Timor and the destruction in 1996 of one such jet by the activist Plowshares Four group using common domestic utensils. exhibition dates: 05/12/15 - 21/02/15

Congratulations to Narelle Jubelin and her collaborators, Fiona MacDonald, Maria Madeira and Victor De Sousa, for winning the 2015 Freemantle Arts Centre Print Award. The $ 16,000.00 prize was awarded for their print work, Elastics / Borrocha / Elástico (2012 Timor-Leste Mobile Residency Archive). The large offset lithograph, printed by Big Fag Press Sydney, is the outcome of the four artists traveling to eleven of the thirteen districts in a mobile residency in East Timor. This Australian-led project, facilitated by the late curator Jennifer Phipps, delves into the history of one of our closest regional neighbours, presenting an insight into Timorese culture and crossing cultural boundaries through print. The work’s title ‘Elastics / Borrocha / Elástico', is borrowed from the universal collaborative children’s jumping game. The 2015 judging panel, consisted of Marian Crawford, Maurice O’Riordan and Gemma Weston.

It is a great pleasure to announce that The Commercial now represents Narelle Jubelin. Jubelin (b. 1960, Sydney, lives Madrid since 1996) has an extensive exhibition history which, from the outset, has been marked by international scope and rigour. An overview of key exhibitions is being developed on The Commercial website where an attempt has been made to reproduce her miniature petit point renditions in 1:1 scale. The Commercial will present an intimate introduction to Jubelin’s work as part of a group exhibition at Sydney Contemporary Art Fair 10/09/15-13/09/15. It will be the first time that her work has been seen in a primary commercial context in Australia for a decade. Her first solo exhibition at The Commercial will be in mid-2016.
