Art Forum - Shotgun 8: dark maria
Speaker: Eloise Kirk
Date: Friday 4 October 2019
Location: Dechaineux Lecture Theatre, School of Creative Arts and Media (CAM), University of Tasmania, Hunter Street, Hobart
A FREE EVENT
Join Shotgun 8 artist Eloise Kirk as she discusses her CAT exhibition dark maria. Kirk collects, divides and then reassembles images and materials, pitting the precious against the precarious. The work is explicitly elemental, offering an aesthetic response to the interval between beauty and disaster, straddling the periphery of the romantic and the surreal.
Shotgun is a partnership project between CAT, DETACHED and Mona that supports the advancement of selected Tasmanian artist/s through a customised and intensive program of high-level industry access, production assistance and critical engagement. CAT curator, Kylie Johnson will preface the Art Forum with an introduction to Shotgun.
Kirk has been Artist in Residence at CAM during semester 2 this year through the Artist in Residency (AIR) program and has utilised the opportunity to assist in the production of work for Shotgun.
Shotgun 8:dark maria presented at CAT, 28 September – 27 October, 2019.
