Starting a conversation around their very different practices, Kim Jaeger and Anna Varendorff have built upon the contributions of each other - Jaeger's undulating and figurative ceramic forms intersecting with Varendorff's language of formal minimalism. The works to emerge offer weightlessness. They are a moment of nearness for two practices. A closeness of materials and a convergence of thoughts.
Kim Jaeger is a ceramicist based in Melbourne. She is best known for her range of Pot Heads – hand made planter pots that are characterized by unique faces. The idea of functionality is central to Kim’s designs and her ongoing interest in sculptural form has lead to the investigation of functionality in art and an interest in how we live with objects in our everyday lives. Kim has exhibited her functional pieces in Los Angeles, Melbourne and Sydney and her work is in private collections worldwide.
Anna Varendorff is a Melbourne-based artist. She recently completed her Masters Fine Arts at Monash University. Her research crosses between jewellery, sculpture and interactive installation. Her work invites comparisons between variables – objects, colours, materials, spaces, textures, weight. Varendorff’s work is sculpture and drawing, crafted object and utensil. She has exhibitied in solo and group exhibitions Australia-wide and has completed multiple public and private commissions.
