Pink Horizon

Traci Kelly

(english)Pink Horizon vereint in einer Ausstellung zwei Schwerpunkte von Traci Kelly's Praxis.
Die Untersuchung der kulturellen und materiellen Bedeutung von Haut und Körper und das Entblättern sowie die Lebendigkeit dieser Themen in Bezug auf die Landschaft und Zeitlichkeit.
Zu sehen ist Kelly's Recherche über die "Haut der Skulptur" und wie diese eigene Begrenzung neu definiert und überwunden werden kann.
Dies wird auch durch die Ausnutzung von Licht und Schatten innerhalb der vorhandenen Ausstellungsarchitektur realisiert.
Der Ausstellungstitel Pink Horizon bezieht sich auf Landschaft – verbunden mit dem Gedanken ans "Jenseits" – unter Einbezug der eigenen Körperlichkeit/"pink flesh" der Künstlerin.

Pink Horizon

Traci Kelly

Pink Horizon draws together in one exhibition two main vehicles of Traci Kelly’s practice – an investigation of the cultural and material signification of skin and skinning and ‘liveness’ in relation to the landscape and temporality. The work will also probe a research concern - ‘the skin of sculpture’, and how sculpture
may redefine and defy its own borders. This will be approached through varied uses of light and shadow and integrate the architectural space to form extended aspects. The title of the show Pink Horizon refers to landscape embroiled with
imagining ‘the beyond’ and also the horizon of the artist’s own pink flesh.

Traci Kelly brings together material and social ideas surrounding skin, tactile knowledge and subjectivity. Touch and shared encounters form the basis of her live work with visual artifacts being approached as shed skins, seductive surfaces and alternative documents to the body. Contamination and resistance are important political and material processes. Her methods often leave marred surfaces evidencing touch, and interruptions where boundaries are disorganised or intervened.

Pink Horizon plays with ideas of the body and the landscape, interweaving ideas of corporeal and geographical topographies. It considers the impermanent body in relation to temporal moments of shifting light and chanced glances where the unanticipated may emerge. Pink Horizon is a gape of possibility. Without a specific wavelength on the electromagnetic spectrum there is no visible light that looks pink. Pink light is an invention of vision, constructed by the brain. The gap between red and purple light in which we imagine the pink contains all things in the universe invisible... radio waves, microwaves, infrared, gamma rays and X-rays. Pink light is a portal to the unseen and intangible… the horizon an anticipated unknown we travel towards.

The presented works range across various levels of visibility, where some are visually abundant others need to be scrutinised to become present. Some works ‘scratch’ the eye, demanding the viewer to be attentive. Others ‘stroke’ – resting on vision and bodies as they pass - revealing the fleshiness of seeing as an interactive meeting place within a nomadic terrain.
