Opening Night: Thursday 5 October, 6-8 pm
Alexandra Kennedy has a practice based in premises which emerged with Conceptual Art in the 1960s and 70s. A process is often established for a work – or series of works – and the making represents an attempt to follow the ‘rules’ set out by the process. Realised work has a large element of chance, as these rules are subjected to interferences which occur as part of the making of a work. Colour is a central element, and again, initial rules about how colour will be utilised are often break down midway through the making of a work, as chance in mixing and in inclination as work progresses take over.
Alexandra lives in Dunedin, New Zealand. She has an MFA in Painting and regularly exhibits internationally. Recent projects include curation of an exhibiton for Antwerp Art Weekend (May 2017) and a solo show with Abstract Projects, Paris, France (July 2017). She works at Dunedin School of Art where she is Postgraduate Coordinator and a Principal Lecturer.
