Kate Andrews is a Canadian artist who has been living and working in Bremen since 2016. Her work - whether in the form of painting, sculpture, drawing or installation - often deals with themes of precariousness and uncertainty. The way that materials, whether strong and robust, or light and fragile, can cooperate with each other - whether harmoniously or causing friction - to create temporary and somewhat provisional structures, is a point of interest for Kate. States of being ‘unfinished’, somewhat unstable, of being caught in a limbo between assembly and collapse, are seen as states of potency, charged and kinetic. Using the studio space as an environment in which to experiment with such constructions, Kate aims to bring together materials which have seemingly irrelevant or clashing properties, and in doing to explores the notion of instability itself, and the confused- yet dynamic- sensations such structures can provoke.
