Kim Kitchen In The Studio

A Warm Welcome.

 

It is here; surrounded by such beauty; the turning of seasons, birth, death, regeneration, all that informs my ability to create, engaged in the natural elements and the unfolding of my life.

 

I am inspired daily by the habitat that surrounds in the wilds of Northern Ontario, walking ever so gently, knowing full well we are care takers not land owners.

 

I desire to live art daily in collaboration with SHE who nurtures, nourishes and sustains.

 

I thank you for visiting my on-line studio and welcome your return.

 

In rhythm, Kim

May 1st to June 12th 2020 WKP Kennedy Gallery      North Bay

Through the art of shaping sound, Kim Kitchen shares her process and insights of these life changing years. Tracing the moments from the debilitating arrival of Rheumatoid Disease, Able to Disabled: My Changing Landscape conveys insurmountable moments of grief, loss and transformation amid testable adaptability and embrace.
 

 

I wish to thank the Ontario Arts Council for their consideration and support throughout the making of this project.    ~ Kim Kitchen 2020

NEW Audio Work  "Able to Disabled: My Changing Landscape"

In this new work, 

Kim recounts a

personal process of transformation &

re-configuration.

 

Kim explores the collective cultural understandings at the intersections of the female body as it finds itself in nature. Her community activism is inclusive, celebratory, and exuberant. In contrast, her artistic work is introspective, thoughtful, and prompts quiet reflection.

Sound art lends itself perfectly to her practice of critical inquiry of body-land relations, and the self-reflexive relationship between ability and artistic and cultural production, as seen through collaboration and community engagement. This new visceral medium enables Kim to return to her beautiful connection to the land, adding the layer of vision provided by her new “listening.”
