Kinly Grey is a Brisbane-based artist who engages with embodiment and expanded poetics in exploration of art’s affect. Their practice includes instructional, performance, installation, and experience-based works that mostly occur outdoors. Placing viewer experience at their centre, Kinly’s works require participation or enactment for their realisation. Intuition, understandings of queerness as a state of possibilities, and poetics serve as their guiding methodological approaches. Laden with metaphor, and foregrounding perception, Kinly’s works are explorations of feeling and experience that intersect the intimately personal, and cosmically reflective.
Kinly graduated from Queensland University of Technology with First Class Honours in 2014. They have exhibited in numerous ARIs, public spaces, and galleries in Brisbane, including at Mt Coot-tha, Metro Arts, Cut Thumb, CLUTCH Collective, FAKE estate, and Boxcopy Contemporary Art Space. They have spoken on various panels including at This Is Not Art Festival (Newcastle), and My View From Here at Metro Arts.
