Small parts in the garden ah-ha
05 Oct 2016—22 Oct 2016
The small sculptures on the floor for TCB follows my travels to Texas and Paris in 2015 and 2016. In Texas, there was a thing on display outside the hardware shop, too heavy to take, it was remade small in Melbourne. In Paris, I looked at casts at the Cité de l’architecture & du Patrimoine, a museum by chance embossed on one of the found objects cast for this show. For TCB, there are space demarcating objects which engage with the figuration of the garden and the act of collecting and making as digging up parts and putting the fragments together.Katherine Huang completed a BFA Honours at The VCA in 1998 and a PhD at Monash University in 2012.
