Announcing Katie Lennard’s Exhibition “Feedback”

We are pleased to announce an exhibition Feedback by Katie Lennard on May 25(Sat.) & 26(Sun.), as a result of her activity during her stay at Studio Kura.

Katie Lennard graduated from City and Guilds of London Art School in 2016 and has since exhibited her work internationally and in the UK.
Lennard commits to materiality in a temporary manner. Inspired by the Japanese concept of ‘Kitsune’, she will hunt for objects, their mythologies and theatrical potentials during her experience at Studio Kura. Using analogue and digital cameras as well as some hand-painted elements, she would like to document the local landscape, integrating self-timer performances, props and costumes she will construct in Japan.

Here are some words from the artist herself.

On collecting drift objects from beaches and retail spaces, I have replaced materials, thoughts and feelings from the studio at home with things I’ve picked up near Studio Kura. Returning to the chaos of nature and the narrative process of recording an environment, has reminded me of the cosmic dynamism of human expression.

Katie Lennard (United Kingdom) Residence: May 2019

K. Lennard graduated from City and Guilds of London Art School in 2016 and has since exhibited her work internationally and in the UK.

Lennard commits to materiality in a temporary manner. Inspired by the Japanese concept of ‘Kitsune’, she will hunt for objects, their mythologies and theatrical potentials during her experience at Studio Kura. Using analogue and digital cameras as well as some hand-painted elements, she would like to document the local landscape, integrating self-timer performances, props and costumes she will construct in Japan.

Lennard aims to make work that conducts an efficient, fluid model of self-reckoning in the face of socially constructed places and the delicacy in which people tread them and seduce each other in the process. In 2018, she was commissioned to create a site-specific installation at The Koppel Project Hive Gallery in London. She spent two months building the work on site and curated a series of happenings.
