Kirsten Wanless


Setting out to establish a link between visual art and poetry. Through immersive installation and sound, she creates an environment which can be explored by her audience. Previously having only used existing poetry as a ready-made to inform her work; then by authoring her own poetry, she makes the once two disparate components inextricable, giving them an equal weight when experienced. Now she is using a combination of both. She focuses the combination of the topics of motherhood and subjects and trials & tribulations of an art student’s everyday life. Trying to draw a conversation between her own life as a student as a woman yet to experience being a mother.
