Stay, create and present in th heart of Tokyo
Residence Period: 2016.03.18-2016.04.23
Primarily using ink and intaglio, Sorcha Mackenzie captures fragments of her one-month residency in Tokyo, exploring Kanda and surrounding areas. The smaller of these "fragments" become a component of understanding, often coalesced and displaced within one another to form large, surreal landscapes. These mysterious scenes often function as cabinets of curiosity; a visual culmination of the artist's experiences. Dimensions seem to ooze over into one another, becoming something outlandish yet familiar.
In 2014, Sorcha Mackenzie completed her BFA Printmaking from the Victorian College of the Arts. During and since university, Sorcha has exhibited her work at local and international galleries and spaces; exhibiting in Tokyo 2014 as one of the Australian representatives for a satellite program of the International Mokuhanga Printmaking Conference and in 2015 for her solo show 'Fragment' during a residency with AIR 3331. In 2016, Sorcha continues to explore her practice through the mediums of ink drawing and printmaking.
