Renowned disruptor and contemporary artist and curator Kirsha Kaechele is transforming the galleries of Design Tasmania into an imaginative wonderland; celebrating artful objects, performance, food and sound.
Launching Friday March 3rd, ‘Pro Paradox’ sees the collaboration between American artist and curator Kachele with a cohort of creatives and fresh talent. Joining forces for an exhibition come-culinary experience, ‘Pro Paradox’ presents an exciting journey for artists and viewers alike.
The exhibition combines intricate design, sound and video, theatrics and surprise, ‘Pro Paradox’ sees contributions from MONA and the Australian Art Orchestra alongside local talent from Newstead College, Drysdale TasTAFE and Launceston’s Big Picture School.
Working closely with Launceston’s fresh talent, Kaechele has created an exhibition celebrating growth and development while providing a platform and professional opportunities for young chefs and students.
“I’m a lot more interested in, when you go into a situation, and you think its just ordinary life and then something crazy happens. That’s the kind of art I’m interested in” – Kirsha Kaechele
Kaechele’s project is described as ‘a school of the imagination; far out objects and a three-month experimental / experiential project.’ She says the whole process is “…an exercise of trust, let’s see what everyone comes up with and see how it all goes together.”
