Jane Elizabeth

 

In 1833, Miss Jane Elizabeth Wylde found herself at the centre of a socio-political scandal that outraged much of the British Empire. Ten years later she had moved to Oak Lodge in Richmond, Tasmania as Mrs James Richard Booth, and disappeared from historical records.

The exhibition, Jane Elizabeth, gives voice to a woman silenced. It animates a high society life of extensive travel and engagement, punctuated by notoriety and scandal. Artists Penny Malone and Mary Scott reimagine events from Jane Elizabeth’s life events that would become memories, forever embedded within the walls of Oak Lodge.

A historical perspective on the things that can influence a woman’s place in the world – politics, class, mobility, alliances and gossip.
