October 2018 - Constructed, Deconstructed, Reconstructed: New works by Kate Elder

For the month of October 2018, ZIMMERMAN is exhibiting Constructed, Deconstructed, Reconstructed - new works by Kate Elder.




Elder’s new works continue an ongoing focus on the constructed world:


“Because of our thirst for space, construction often creeps towards the physical limits. And while one can try to simulate unbounded and limitless spaces, of course they’re a myth.


You can easily take one of these complex interiors and turn it inside out - deconstructing the form in all its parts, ready to rebuild and start the process again.”


Kate Elder was born in Wellington in 1980. In 2001 Elder completed a Bachelor of Fine Arts (majoring in sculpture) at Dunedin School of Art, and went on to study cabinetmaking in Spain.


Elder spent a number of years working with furniture, before returning her focus to art, using the skills and knowledge acquired over this period to refine her art practice.


Elder has twice received awards as part of her participation in the Mahara Gallery Review, taking out the top Open award in 2015 and the 3D Award in 2017.


This is the artist’s third solo exhibition at ZIMMERMAN.


The exhibition “Constructed, Deconstructed, Reconstructed” runs from 1 to 31 October 2018.
