Gallery 1

Kirsty Fletcher makes small-scale cardboard sculptures and collage relief works, often using reclaimed packaging and ephemera including met-cards, beer cartons, cardboard boxes and salvaged objects. Despite the inert and flimsy nature of her materials, Kirsty’s works often feature kinetic, moving parts. In this exhibition, cardboard mice run wild in a hall of waving ‘Lucky’ cats. The hand-made mechanisms are informed by pop-up books and old fashioned toy technology, and are related to everyday situations and environments.

Kirsty Fletcher is a Melbourne-based artist and architect. Her works have been featured in exhibitions in Melbourne, Darwin, Spain, Venice, and are included in numerous private collections.
