Born 1970, Sydney
In her unique offering in the exhibition, Katerina Knight-Kat offers a fetishistic approach to her work, assembled from papier mâché, shells, glass, cabbage tree bark and cowrie shells, reminscent of tribal references.
Examples of her sculpture include ceramic poles installed in a public place in Sydney representing religious and mystical symbols. She has created other three-dimensional installations made from stone, wood and bone carvings. Other aspects of her practice range from graphics to juxtaposed spirit figure collages. She alludes to Papuan traditional practices in her approach to sculpture.
