Kate Owens

Kate Owens covets the life of the flaneur. Her observations of the small defects and diversions in daily routine take on a significance beyond their scale. The work is perpetually flitting between its familiar micro identity and a more abstract macro state. In 'Giant's Bread', tap water and glass transforms before the eyes to acquire depth, weight and a history before becoming glass and water once more. This transient condition and reluctance to become permanent adds to the work's vulnerability. In the end it takes the belief of the viewer to bring the work fully into being.
