Drawing Down Don
Josephine Cachemaille (New Zealander, b.1971)

In the gallery installation configuration of Us, Us, Us, Josephine hung Drawing Down Down in the southern corner of the Potton Family Gallery, and positioned a collection work, Don Driver’s painting assemblage, Reactive Planes (1995), high on the wall above. The colours and forms in this piece were key elements repeated through-out the installation, and informed the title “Drawing Down Don”, a reference to Cachemaille’s quasi-magical efforts to “draw down” his essences and qualities.
The title also references Australian artist Mikala’s Dwyer’s 2012 exhibition “Drawing Down the Moon”, and is a homage to both artists’ practices and preoccupations with transforming the mundane into the magical and ritualistic.
