ARISTS: Fiona Davies, Beata Geyer, Sarah Keighery and Daniel Kojta
For the 1st Worldwide Apartment and Studio Biennale, Modern Art Projects will hold their first Studio – MAP show. Two of the group, artists Beata Geyer and Fiona Davies work with highly saturated colour but utilise the optical properties in almost opposing ways. They have quite different practices and this obsession with saturated colour is one of the few obvious points of overlap. Despite this, they share a great interest in each other’s work.
In this project, COLOUR RUN, they will be working in collaboration both as artists and as curators to analyse the processes underlying each other’s and their own practices. Using experiment and play, making and curating they will produce works together in installation in and amongst the existing work already in the studio space. A process of collaboration through cross studio residency informs this study of the site through colour, process, light and object.
The event will also feature artists: Daniel Kojta and Sarah Keighery.
MAP, Modern Art Projects, is a social and cultural engagement program established in 2013 by a small group of contemporary artists and curators designed to explore the nexus of art and architecture via a broad inter-disciplinary field. It has rapidly grown into the premiere contemporary arts organisation in the Blue Mountains, NSW, co-ordinating programs in a broad range of cultural activities including a multiplicity of contemporary artistic practices, artists residencies, writings on art and culture and the archiving of local histories.
