Exhibiting from the 17th – 29th October 2011
ABOVE IMAGE - Reformations by Kay Lawrence
Kay Lawrence’s interdisciplinary art practice engages with the anthropological, physical and spiritual aspects of her natural surrounds. Correlating her imagery adopting metaphor and abstraction, Kay has developed a distinct and recognizable art pieces, where she combines textiles (thread, various materials) and digital imagery. Kay states that she “explores the boundaries of nature and culture while developing parameters and perspectives that embrace fractures and dislocation of time/space continuum and the fragile and ephemeral nature of both life and time. ”
This exhibition forms part of Kay Lawrence’s doctoral research into eco – feminist matters while exploring the concepts of Gaia, referencing the relationship between our (human beings) interconnection with the earth (a fragile living organism).
Kay Lawerence – RE/FORMATIONS 17th - 29th October 2011
Hard to distinguish in these two photos (above , taken by me, Jo) but it is well worth mentioning and adding to this site, as this installation is relevant to Kays art practice. The installation shows Kay walking on wooden floorboards with strong audio distinctly of others walking and/or experiencing the same space as Kay but are not in visual sight – there are only one pair of feet . that was shown in the install room at pop. The contrast in sound and visual aspects of the film depicts the artist walking across timber floors and is juxtaposed with the positioning of the camera angle screening the film on the concrete gallery floor at POP.
