Kate Land

(she, her)

Kate Land is a Brisbane based artist whose multidisciplinary practice celebrates the absurdism of the ordinary. Kate works with text to examine the interplay between the literal and metaphorical; throwing off balance the dichotomy between the real and the imagined. Her practice responds to the contemporary Australian vernacular, using humour to soften institutional critiques and analyses of social and representational sys­tems. Kate’s sculptural and installation works feature a cache of found, manufactured and assembled materials – zeroing in on the silliness of the mundane object, and its complexity and potential as art.
