Artist Talk – Katie West
June 18 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
This talk has been rescheduled to 18 June
Join artist Katie West for this free talk as she takes us through her artistic practice and work ‘I love you my baby, you are my first born’ on display in ‘Tracks We Share: Contemporary Art of the Pilbara’.
Katie West is an artist and Yindjibarndi woman based in Noongar Ballardong country, working in installation, textiles and social practice. The process and notion of naturally dyeing fabric underpin her practice – the rhythm of walking, gathering, bundling, boiling up water and infusing materials with plant matter. Using found and naturally dyed textiles, video, and sound, Katie creates installations, textile pieces, and happenings that invite attention to the ways we weave our stories, places, histories, and futures.
