STILL LIFE: SLEEP OF NON-BEING
Juz Kitson’ s Still Life: sleep of non-being at GAGPROJECTS Greenaway Art Gallery explores the notion of ‘Omnia mors aequat’ Death makes all equal. The vastness of mediums come together to create a potent mix of taxonomic collections that explore the transience and impermanence of life, through disconnection and re-examination of the fragmented body and objectification, these perverse pathologies become independent entities- that attain their own identity.
Her work deals with abject subjects and themes through meticulously formed installations that allow the audience to speculate on the budding life forms and hidden deeper meanings and in contrast the friction and dichotomy of brutality in nature.
Juz Kitson currently practices between rural NSW and Jingdezhen China. In 2013 she was included in Primavera at The Museum of Contemporary Art and her work is held in the permanent collection of MONA The Museum of Old and New Art.
