Conversations with the Artists: Kate Woods
Join us at Northart to hear about the artistic practice of Kate Woods on Sunday 20 June, 1pm - 2pm.
Kate Woods was born in Auckland in 1981. She holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Elam School of Fine Arts, Auckland University (2002). Woods has exhibited in artist run spaces, dealer and public galleries including Te Tuhi Centre for the Arts, Auckland; XYZ Collective, Tokyo and City Gallery Wellington. She was the recipient of an Asia New Zealand Foundation residency at Three Shadows Photography Art Centre in Beijing in 2012.
Through her constructed photography and video works Kate Woods creates imaginary landscapes or alternate worlds. In past work she investigated the documentary photography of 60s and 70s Land Art in the way some of the images tend to give the sense of a non-space, or at least a space that can never be physically accessed, as it may not exist anymore. Places you will never arrive in yet seem familiar.
