Artist In Residence at University of Wollongong
August 26, 2014
In Semester 2 of 2014 Catriona Stanton will be in residence at The University of Wollongong UOW in The School of Arts, English and Media. The Artists in Residence program provides staff and students with excellent opportunities to work and study with national and international artists and media practitioners in a vibrant research culture with significant potential for interdisciplinary and cross-artform collaboration. UOW has hosted visiting artists and fellows from many countries including North America, Mexico, Scotland, India, Sri Lanka, Taiwan, France, New Zealand and Turkey. Visiting artists and fellows participate in teaching programs and postgraduate seminars and often undertake collaborative projects with students.
This program offers opportunities for creative researchers to spend time in the school to work on their research and to collaborate with other researchers.
The residency will enable Stanton to develop a new body of work combines Hindi kitsch paraphernalia with elemental natural forms gathered in the Illawarra Coastal bush. The work is a fusion of the quasi spiritual and the banal, the fantastic and the ordinary as natural and artificial materials interweave to form a personal lexicon of belonging. This work evolves out of a collaboration with Anne Ooms, Echo, in which I responded sculpturally to Ooms drawings in an intuitive and non prescriptive manner.
