Event Details

with myself ruminates and speaks on the artist’s unfolding sexuality, the fullness of desire and connection. Specifically, the soft sculptural works respond to her recently realised bisexuality – resting, pulling, and playing with the broad concept of ‘making love’. Having been single for many years, in this body of work Kate examines intertwined narratives of solitude and emerging desire. Muddling around in the space between sensuality and sexuality, her work processes the eb and flow of happiness, loneliness, and disorienting new desire.

Kate Marshall is a nipaluna based artist whose work moves from sculpture to installation, drawing, zine making and performance. Currently her practice ponders personal and social relationships with bodies, sexuality, femininity, and vulnerability. Her works are intimate, rich in colour, intensely tactile, and playful. Since graduating with a BABFA in 2020 she has shown works exploring these themes in multiple group shows, locally and interstate. Kate’s recent accomplishments in her practice include winning Best Work in 3D at Artfully Queer 2021, and showing work in a small group show at Good Grief in April 2023.


This exhibition is presented in MAC’s Project Space Gallery.
