  Work Details  
  Woodshedding is a term used by musicians to describe the arduous task of practicing until something is ‘right’. Woodshed was a large two-tier wooden structure that resembled a house. It was built as both a performance space and an installation, designed to obstruct the entrance to the railwayarch space at Beaconsfield Gallery. On entering the arch viewers were immediately confronted with, and had to walk around the structure to see the rest of the exhibition. Artists invited to perform in this space included (amongst others): Clippety Clop!, Richard Dedomenici, Bruce Gilchrist, Monica Ross and Aaron Williamson. Woodshed was commissioned by Beaconsfield on the occasion of their 10 year anniversary exhibition Chronic Epoch. It was designed and built by Eric Rosonan after a drawing by Hayley Newman. Exhibitors included: Eija-Liisa Ahtila, Beaconsfield Artworks, Anna Best, Susan Collis, Keith Coventry, Mikey Cuddihy, Shane Cullen, Robert Ellis, Bruce Gilbert, Carl Michael von Hausswolff and Thomas Nordanstad, John Isaacs, Hayley Newman, (nobleandsilver), Bob and Roberta Smith, Kerry Stewart, Tomoko Takahashi.
