OLSEN gallery is pleased to announce Juz Kitson‘s That which provides safety and the possibility of growth, that which you can put your trust in, 2017 has been selected as a finalist in the 2017 Wynne Prize.
“This installation is a heady mix of artefact and disturbing viscera, a kind of contemporary shamanism, playing with representations and perceptions of the human and animal condition.”
“The universal language here represents the outsider versus the insider, acceptance and isolation, connection and displacement – a theme that is constant in the lives of people living in remote areas, though is ultimately united by the human condition.”
“The juxtaposition of inanimate materials is suggestive of the cycle of life. It also creates the sense that the work is alive, in an ironic way, as all living things decay.”
Juz Kitson, 2017
The Wynne Prize winner is to be announced on Friday July 28th 2017.
