KINESPHERE is a major solo project that uses utopic, absurdist and guerrilla strategies to find new physical interactions with everyday environs and to critically challenge the way we are patterned to read and use the built environment. It is a significant new project by a Western Australian artist at a pivotal point in her career.
Talented WA artist Erin Coates is inspired by urban climbing and an interest in architecture. Coates draws a fluid relationship between drawing, 3-dimensional structures and moving image. Each element interacts with another: the towering central architectural sculpture is formed from the tessellating lines based on the points of contact made during her climbs; recordings of bodies moving across built forms generating the shapes of cast climbing holds in the gallery; and large diagrammatic wall drawings reveal a matrix of invisible routes and information layered over architecture and public art throughout the city.
The Perth Cultural Centre Screen exhibit of works from Kinesphere is taken from the Perth Institute of Contemporary Arts exhibition, Kinesphere.
