New World

27 September - 8 October 2018

The series New World is a collection of images taken in and around the Tehachapi Pass wind farm in California during a road trip from Los Angeles to San Fransisco. They were snapped on an iPhone at dawn and capture a drought stricken landscape that resonates with a quiet intensity.

The works speak to the battle with climate change and act as an urgent reminder that we have perhaps reached the point of no return and the legacy we are now leaving for generations to come.

Solo Exhibition Home Video

7 - 21 November 2017

With her works as presented in this exhibition, Katrina Lezaic, in part, salutes absence, missing and grief. A way to get over the pain of loss by wearing out the same story through sheer repetition: a video on loop. A kind of exorcism! An intimacy with absence. But as well, it offers a new way of representing presences or spirits. It is not that the figures have been removed but the symbols for the figures are there to say what the figures said – a kind of direct communion between the artist and the viewer, a touchstone of her reverence and devotion. Perhaps too, it is a distilling of moments filled with possibility, moments heard about but never directly experienced, a documenting of those moments, a personal response to the joy that was missed, a way to make it exist.
