Kay Abude is a sculptor living and working in Melbourne. She completed a Master of Fine Art (by Research) at the Victorian College of the Arts and Music in 2010. Her art practice is a hybrid of drawing, object making, photography, film, installation, costume and performance.
Recent exhibitions in 2011 include Kerameikou 32
presented by BUS Projects as part of ReMap3 in Athens, curated by Melody Ellis and Nella Themelios and the Keith and Elisabeth Murdoch Travelling Scholarship
at the VCA Margaret Lawrence Gallery.
With an early exposure to the working processes of the factory, Abude’s recent Masters project examined the factory as a production based model within a labour intensive art practice. Central themes include repetition, time and endurance that run parallel to the triad of art, life and work. Abude takes a task-orientated approach to acts of making, staging highly aestheticized installations within durational performance.
