Thistledown, kangaroo fur and termite gnawed wood
Something Else 7th March show summary:
Kath Fries solo exhibition ‘Situational’ is an exploration of tactility, temporality and memory through site-sensitive sculptural installations, sculptures, videos and photographs created during a residency at Bundanon Trust last year.
In interview with Maren, Kath Fries explains the idea of site-responsivness and how it guides her practice. We hear about her time in the landscape at Bundanon Trust, her productivity at magic hour and her use of found and natural materials such as thistledown, kangaroo fur and termite gnawed wood.
Kath Fries also explained her influence from Arte Povera, and the movement of the purpose of the artwork into the realm of the audience and individual memory and associations. The art in the everyday is heightened by the fleeting nature of the relatioship between the individual and the artwork as they coincide on many planes in the space of the Chrissie Cotter Gallery.
