Comment
Between 1922 and 1939 Doris Brears sat for a series of examinations in Pianoforte with The Australian Music Examinations Board. In 1998 seven certificates that she was awarded were found in a cardboard box at the Saint Vincent de Paul charity shop in Sutherland. These certificates have been salted and used with various music scores to form this installation. Hazelhurst Gallery Sydney 2002.
