In celebration of NAIDOC Week and beyond…
A live and interactive experience with one of our great state’s brightest creatives…
Sunrise After Sunrise, Sunset After Sunset
Join us in the Postal Hall from the 3 of June until the 17 of July and look up to enjoy the visual beauty of Sunrise after Sunrise, Sunset after Sunset 2022, by Yindjibarndi artist, Katie West.
“Sunrise after Sunrise, Sunset after Sunset 2022 comprises ten textiles pieces, each depicting a basket significant to Katie’s Yindjibarndi family. These pieces are part of an ongoing series and contemplation of how our human ancestors made all the objects they required for daily life and how these times of slow and collective making gave form to times and spaces to tend to kinship connections between people, plants, animals and the lands we call home.”
Proudly supported by Tourism Western Australia.
Katie West is an artist and Yindjibarndi woman based in Noongar Ballardong country, working in installation, textiles and social practice. The process and notion of naturally dyeing fabric underpin her practice – the rhythm of walking, gathering, bundling, boiling up water and infusing materials with plant matter. Using found and naturally dyed textiles, video, and sound, Katie creates installations, textile pieces, and happenings that invite attention to the ways we weave our stories, places, histories, and futures.
Katie has presented solo exhibitions at Perth Institute of Contemporary Art (PICA), TarraWarra Museum of Art, Healesville and West Space, Melbourne for Next Wave Festival 2016, and participated in group exhibitions nationally and internationally, including the Australian Centre for Contemporary Art (ACCA), Melbourne and Shimmer, Rotterdam.
