Gotham Studios is delighted to present a solo exhibition by our current artist-in-residence, Kristen Brownfield. Of the exhibition, Brownfield states: "dust and rocks forms a relationship between a recording I made in 2017 in Naarm of a piece of dust on a windowsill, some text from a National Parks sign in the South West I found this year, and a clump of dust/debris from the vacuum cleaner at my work. It is an accumulation of thoughts on; the life span of stuff, tiny moments and big geological time scales, gradual formation, observation and marking time. Responding to Peek a Boo’s pedestrian nature, it plays with slowness to engage passersby (or not) with a sense of time and slightness."
