Associate Studio Programme 5 : Kate Squires

Kate starts the visit by showing us her way of making spontaneous free-standing sculptures. By altering forms through changes in scale, shape and material, she demonstrates her interest in ambiguity and explores the blurriness that exists in reading an object in one or more ways. This leads us to engage in a lively activity, in which each of the artists writes down on a piece of paper what they consider significant to their practice, and then places it down, thus forming a physical map across the studio floor. The subsequent conversation revolves around words such as fetish, narrative, tangibility and lifespan. Drawing significance from each of our practices by giving a direct response to each chosen word, we are able to find a common ground in a rather unexpected place. Yin Yi Fung
