Art NOW presents Anne Low
Artist Anne Low will give a talk about her practice within the context of material research. She also discusses the process of making the works for her exhibition Figure like hearse at SAAG, which is on view from December 5, 2020 to February 14, 2021.
Anne Low's practice engages with sculpture, installation, textiles and printmaking to investigate how particular expressive forms are able to unhinge themselves from historical contingency and speak to contemporary subjects such as the domestic, the decorative, utility and taste. Her work speaks to wider narratives around the impulse to individuate object and self and how the impulse to decorate is a desire that extends through history and is expressed onto the planes and surfaces of domestic interiors and objects.
