    Your Boat My Scenic Personality of Space was made for and exhibited at, Queensland Art Gallery/GoMA in Julie Ewington's "Contemporary Australia: Women" exhibition in 2012.

    "Known for an aesthetic that the artist describes as ‘baroque grunge’, Williams’s recent works have become increasingly elaborate combinations of video post-production, sound and lighting. Energetic and seemingly chaotic, Williams’s fantastic performance videos are extravagant, highly-considered and immensely enjoyable. For ‘Contemporary Australia: Women’, Williams presents two works that dance in a kind of dialogue, (including) Your boat my scenic personality of space, displayed on two large screens, shows two performers  involved in what Williams calls a ‘lovers’ discourse’. They are shown pulling on ropes and tying themselves up in knots, performing a fan dance and engaging a water pistol battle." QAG website.
