(2018/2020)






Initially conceived in 2018 as a collection of Desktop Wallpaper designs printed on silk, the original 7 Wallpaper Queens in the series include; Elizabeth, Harriet, Tara, Xanadu, Aimee, Kate and Lexie. Examining notions of romance in the digital age, each design is a shrine to a partner, ex, or close friend of the artist. Laden with hyper-referentiality, the works aim to collapse the space between puplic and private domains, paying tribute to intimate queer relationships though the fetishistic lens of pop culture.

In 2020, the series was extended for UQ Museum’s online exhibition Conflict in My Outlook_We Met Online, curated by Anna Briers. The 2020 series is fully animated and includes 5 more Queens; Trinity, Jorde, Giorgia, Leo and Sidney.

   Xanthe acknowledges the traditional owners of the land on which their work is made, the Widjabul/Wyabul people of the Bundjalung Nation, the Gadigal people of the Eora Nation, and the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nation. They pay their respects to elders, past, present, and emerging.  Sovereignty was never ceded. Always was, always will be Aboriginal land.
