PUNCTURE TO THE WIND
5 – 20 September 2020
Exhibition text by TAYLOR HALL
KIM has been working at THE WALLS throughout Winter as part of our 2020 LOCAL AIR (ARTIST IN RESIDENCE) program. During this time her photographic studies have mingled with current conceptual investigations into social media and the potential effects on individual identity.
KIMBERLY STOKES is a Gold-Coast based artist who examines the effects of digital culture on perceptions of self. Her work addresses the conventions of social networking sites, and how these facilitate the continuous fragmentation, adaptation and dissemination of identity. Employing a conceptual approach to art making, Stokes works in an array of mediums, including still and moving images, installation and performance. Through her practice, she confronts the prevailing collapse of the borders between virtual and physical realities, and explores the potential impacts this can have on an individual’s sense of self.
