About this Event

Join Yvonne Kustec for an artist talk about her work and practice, as well as her upcoming exhibition The Garden which opens in the Project Space from 8 February to 6 June. Kustec employs various hand building techniques with clay to produce figurative sculptural work merged with elements of flora and fauna to reclaim the body from patriarchal traditions, institutions, and ideologies. Through her sculpture, she works to deconstruct the symbolic nature of femininity and to redefine historical narratives by stripping them of characterization and virtuous attributes, while highlighting the powerful and instinctual survival nature of the feminine spirit.

This talk will happen on Zoom.

Registration essential, opens 13 January at 11AM. Only one registration required per device/household.
