2017 Summer Residencies Program at Yarra Sculpture Gallery
Yarra Sculpture Gallery’s Summer ResidenciesProgram is open to all artists via EOI to have a large working and research space for two months (Jan & Feb) to plan and produce artwork towards an exhibition on completion.
This year we are delighted to have three artists in residence: Katy Bowman, Anne-Marie Kuter and Michael Porter.
During her residency, Katy Bowman has been making a series of mobiles working with a variety of materials as a means to explore ideas around line, colour, movement and space.
Anne-Marie Kuter’s residency explores rhythm, repetition and colour by making artworks from her collection of acrylic paint and bangles sourced from work, op shops and friends. Her interest stems from using items destined for the waste bin or given away as no longer valued by the wearer, and then re-configuring them into something of beauty.
New Zealand-born Michael Porter uses found objects and machinery parts from industrial waste to configure and create monumental, robotic figures in the landscape. Yarra Sculpture Gallery’s vast spaces have allowed him the opportunity to experiment with larger-than-life scale and monumentality.
Come and meet the artists at the Opening, hear them speak about their practice and benefits of working as artist in residence at Yarra Sculpture Gallery.
Exhibition Opening: Saturday 18 February, 3-5pm
