Announcing Caitlin Bowe’s Exhibition “keep me far from harm and fault”

We are pleased to announce an exhibition keep me far from harm and fault by Caitlin Bowe on September 22 (Sat) to 24 (Mon), as a result of her activity during her stay at Studio Kura.

Caitlin Bowe is an emerging artist based in Adelaide, South Australia, working predominantly in the field of sculpture. In 2017 she graduated with First Class Honours from Adelaide Central School of Art. Since graduating, Bowe has shown work in the ‘Threads of Thought’ exhibition at Signal Point Gallery as well as ‘The Doll Redefined’ exhibition at Gallery 1855. She has also been a finalist in ‘The Emma Hack Art Prize’ and ‘Youthscape 2018 Exhibition’.

Bowe’s work looks to translate personal trauma through mythological stories and Victorian Mourning aesthetics. Through the use of casting and textile techniques, bodily fears are magnified and exaggerated, as mythological symbols are subtly used to create layers of personal and cultural meanings. By searching for themes in these stories which connect with her trauma, Bowe blends and weaves these themes together to situate herself amongst a larger cultural narrative.

Here are some words from the artist herself.

While in Japan I have been looking at beliefs and symbols of protection. Ideas that imagery, objects, and ritual can keep us safe from forces that are often out of our control.
Through sculptural forms I have mixed Japanese imagery with symbols from my own Celtic heritage which explore beliefs surrounding the idea of protection.
