Kate Newby Let The Other Thing In
Edited by Rosemary Heather, Nicolaus Schafhausen
Contributions by Paul Dean, Jennifer Kabat, Mami Kataoka, Kate Newby, Daniel Wong
In Kate Newby’s site-responsive installations, handcrafted and found objects are often combined with words or phrases to form artworks that engage with the particularities of place. The New Zealand artist’s intimate engagement with materials and nonhierarchical involvement with space exhibit a sophisticated understanding of the role that architecture plays in the shaping of thought and perception, our sense of self in the body and in community. Copublished with Fogo Island Arts, this catalogue accompanies Newby’s exhibition at the Fogo Island Gallery on Fogo Island, off the northeastern coast of Newfoundland in Canada. The publication features an interview with Newby by Mami Kataoka, an essay by Jennifer Kabat, and a conversation between Newby, geologist Paul Dean, and strategist Daniel Wong, as well as the artist’s "Skim Stone Pictures," a photo series of people skimming her ceramic stones into various bodies of water.
