Cross-Section is a new body of work developed with the supported by the Abbotsford Convent Foundation as part of their ‘Alchemy’ program.
“The Abbotsford Convent is a place where people come to watch, to work, and to reflect. For artist Katie Lee, the Convent is like an archetypal Town Square, where people gather for many purposes. With this in mind, Katie will push, manoeuvre and display a series of sculptural objects in and around the grounds of the Abbotsford Convent, using the buildings, trees, infrastructure and businesses as the context for the work. Over the course of a fortnight, you will be able to watch Katie’s work play out, wondering if she is just another person going about their business at the Convent; part of the working community passing through the Town Square.”
Events will be captured in a series of documentary fragments that will be replayed on 4 video screens around the convent. You can follow the project at #crosssection on instagram. Or locate works on the online map: convent.katielee.com.au (zoom in to see all locations).
Live performances will be developed in collaboration with Emma Collard and Bella Frahn-Starkie. Specific performance times will announced online throughout the duration of the exhibition.
