Kristen Brownfield @ SHOPFRONT GALLERY

Event Title: Teeter
Participating Artists: Kristen Brownfield

149 Beaufort St, Northbridge

Description: Teeter is an installation that will be made in response to the
SHOPFRONT GALLERY. Working from a palette of up-cycled objects and studio
remnants, Kristen will create a three-dimensional drawing in the space that
suggests the extension of the making process from studio to the gallery
site. Precarious and unfixed, the work seeks to emphasize the ephemeral
relations between object, space and the viewer.

During a studio residency at ECU, Kristen has been occupied with material
investigations and the reconfiguration of found objects. Through assemblage,
she has explored ways to construct a dialogue between a range of materials
and architectural space, considering small interventions and countless
potential arrangements. As her first solo show, Teeter can be seen as one
rendition specific to the SHOPFRONT GALLERY.

Kristen Brownfield (born 1992) is an emerging Perth artist working across
collage, painting, assemblage and installation and artist-books. Since
completing her BA last year, she has undergone a studio placement at Paper
Mountain ARI (Northbridge) and Edith Cowan University, Mt Lawley (current).
She also co-founded the artist-run-initiative another, in Perth.

Dates: Wednesday 17th August 2016 to Sunday 21st August 2016.
Opening Times: Opening night 6-pm, Thurs-Sun 11-6pm.
