Collection leads: Kate Beynon—kindred spirits

Kate Beynon—kindred spirits is part of the ‘Collection leads’ series of exhibitions that draw on major works held in the Geelong Gallery collection to build a deeper understanding of the artist’s practice.

Kate Beynon’s Graveyard scene/the beauty and sadness of bones (2014–15)—winner of the 2016 Geelong contemporary art prize—is based on a scene from An-Li: a Chinese ghost tale, the artist’s re-telling of a supernatural story of two young spirits who traverse opposing worlds: one aquatic, the other earthly. This ‘Collection leads’ exhibition includes watercolours, paintings and soft sculptures that expand on the story of An-Li and provide greater insights to Beynon’s practice in which she merges diverse pictorial traditions with personal histories to address issues of hybridity, cultural identity and feminism.
