Feral Exhibition
Kate Browne

Kate’s practice stems from levels of recovery concerning natural and manmade disasters. She is also researching into how the Government reacts in the face of a worldly disaster, looking into the various problems in the giving of aid.

Her drawings consist of the essential items needed for our survival, and the prospect of them being aid independently. The application of gold leaf, is an important factor as this communicates the function for them. As she applies this luxurious material aimlessly to her drawings, she is suggesting how aid is given in this way in the recovery stages of a disaster.

Once she has finished a series of drawings, she selects a quantity of them to act as a ‘gift’ by placing them in envelopes, and sending them to a disaster zone. This action causes the drawings themselves to be essentially useless. Leading to the questioning of the role Art has in society.
