Kira Freije
Kira Freije (1985, lives and works in London, UK) links the material language and process of sculpture-making to written poetic structure. Meaning occurs through sculptural constellations of the universally recognisable and memory driven; the figure, the domestic, the natural world. Permeating all these subjects is the feeling of desire concealed. The complexities of intimacy, faith, power and protection inherent in ideas of the ‘invisible’ are searched for and sharpened through the work.
