Incorporating sculpture, installation, video and performance, Bronwyn Katz engages with the concept of land as a repository of memory, reflecting on the notion of place or space as lived experience, and the ability of the land to remember and communicate the memory of its occupation. Her wall-based wire sculptures are a continuation of her exploration into the charting of existing places and memories as well as imagined spaces, or dreamscapes, and with them she investigates the potential of her materials to serve as markers and representations of space and memory.(text Blank Projects)
