Artist Talk and Guided Tour with Kelcie Bryant-Duguid
Sunday 3rd December 1pm - 3pm
This public program is an opportunity to hear from Kelcie Bryant-Duguid as she speaks on the final day of her solo exhibition ‘The girl who climbed trees’. Kelcie is a multi-disciplinary artist who is interested in examining the importance of language and how it shapes cultural expectation, responsibility, conversation, and action. Her wearable artworks provide a canvas that evokes memories of childhood and represent the domestic life and journey of women.
Learn insights about Kelcie’s material process - reusing and transforming household waste materials including helium balloons, flour bags, newspaper, and cereal packets into fantastical fashion pieces. See her narrative works come to life on the fashion runway as featured in various Australian Wearable Art Awards.
Join us on Sunday afternoon to celebrate this regional artist and explore her expansive solo show, whose textile works address themes of childhood nostalgia, sustainability, the environment, and gender equity among others.
Trigger Warning. The work "She Matters” discusses domestic violence and represents the more than 50 women who have died due to gender-based violence in Australia so far this year. Like many of her works that address difficult subjects, it is designed to foster discussion. Due to the subject matter, it may be distressing for some people.
