The inspiration for Kitty Calvert’s assemblage sculptures comes from a love of vintage and a desire to re-use and recycle unique pieces of discarded treasure. Evoking cherished memories of childhood and making new cool stuff out of old cool stuff.
Kitty’s wish is to delight her audience with mischievous frivolity and quirky humor.
Born from the detritus of a multitude of memories, each sculpture is created using vintage, upcycled, recycled, lost, found and discovered treasures evoking cherished memories of childhood and times past.
We invite the viewer to reflect on the potential journey each piece has made to its final resting place inside the sculpture. In today’s world where things are designed with obsolescence in mind, we find there is a hankering for things that last. Sometimes these are things from our past maybe things we let go of years ago or things that were lost or misplaced as our lives evolved and we “grew”.
With the sculptures, we have given them a new life. Seeing the pieces recycled, revived and restored, reimagined, reborn and reinvigorated in a way that can bring a new joy to a new audience.
Exhibition launch Tuesday 25th February 6 pm-8 pm at Gasworks Arts Park, Albert Park, Melbourne, Victoria then daily from 9.30 am to 4 pm until 15th March.
