to live in a city is to live in an ecosystem constructed by hand, by us. we build streets, we build rooms, we produce furniture and rugs to fill the rooms. We plant trees on our streets, we bring flowers into our homes, we cover our yards in fake grass, we wear vines as flat prints on our clothing. choosing an outfit is like planting a garden. knitting a hat is like building a house.
every way to make a flower is an installation that highlights the human hand in utilitarian constructions that blend into the background of the urban mundane. in an entirely scavenged dwelling, KA will be weaving live using found fibers. the installation is an interactive collage of found objects that challenges one to question the definition and origin of “beauty” in the context of mass production and city living.
KA (pronounced KAY-AY) is a multidisciplinary artist who was raised in Atlanta, GA and became an individual by the train tracks and rivers of Athens, GA. Their work is created using collected materials, images, and sounds to recontextualize an experience of Place. Their textile sculptures, videos, and performances are time-based collages that describe a web of relationships within their immediate environment and community. KA prefers to experience their current residence, Los Angeles, via bicycle.
