Curated by Rosby’s Kay Norton-Knight for the internationally acclaimed Rosby Gallery – artists, Jody Graham, and classically trained double-bassist, Mark Cauvin’s exhibition, Mimicry, combines functional sculpture, mixed-media drawing and sound in a performative and reflective experience.
Feathered with Graham’s bird drawings, created using various implements including charred sticks from the Black Summer bush fires, Mimicy opens with a live Sound Drawing performance in the Rosby grounds. This event will see Graham and Cauvin continue their exploration into the connection between their mediums in somewhat of an improvised, progressive feedback loop culminating in a finished drawing. The sounds of Cauvin’s double bass informing the marks Graham makes and vice versa.
Beyond the influences created in the moment, the pair share instruments to make gestures – created by Graham from bone and other found objects – she draws using sculptural ‘gloves’ while Cauvin, at times, replaces his bow with similar objects.
These instruments of creation are pivotal in the pair’s work – their sculptural forms being displayed along side the works they enable.
