Kiah Reading: Game Plan [In the Zone]

WHEN : 1st - 15th April
WHERE : The Walls

Yesterday I dreamt of a voyage to the desert. When I woke up, I turned to Pamela and said “I don’t know why, this town is really isolated but whenever we arrive by bus they always drop us at the door of a Lacoste store”.

In the zone, match practiced and competitive. Courts, fields, demarcations of space embedded in trajectories. Disciplines getting somewhere. Lines, time, our continuum. Activity and rest. Dotted and competitive productivity. Dotted unquestioned rhythms.

On a cement-bound aggregate, harmonious extractions on the brink of wonder, a Greater Sunrise leaving a bitter aftertaste for the little lost.

Utilising physical object and experience–making, Kiah Reading is motivated by a strong will to open the discussion of our personal idiosyncrasies as political beings and speculations on the current contemporary desire for the economisation of non-economical phenomena (desire, language, creativity and communication) and whether this is distinctly different to the ongoing extraction of minerals at ground level.

Since graduating with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in 2014 from Griffith University, Kiah has undertaken exhibitions, performances, residencies and publications across Australia, Perú, Turkey, Belgium and France. Within this period, Kiah has been supported by grants and commissions from The Australia Council for the Arts, Arts Queensland through the Regional Development for the Arts Fund, the Peruvian Embassy in Ankara, Liquid Architecture and First Draft. GAME PLAN [IN THE ZONE] will be Kiah’s first solo exhibition in Australia.

Opening: Saturday 1 April, 5 – 8pm. Lecture performance: 6pm.

GAME PLAN [IN THE ZONE] is part of Bleach* Festival 2017.
