Katherine Hattam - The Landscape of Language
‘The Landscape of Language’ extends Katherine Hattam’s ongoing engagement with the cultural and personal currencies of language. Drawing from her ever-expanding visual lexicon, the Melbourne artist employs repetition as a tool for revelation, uncovering quiet truths layered beneath the minutiae of the everyday. In her new series, Hattam brings into focus female artists and the significance of knowing their names whilst also responding to the extraordinary story of William Dawes and his relationship with young Eora woman Patyegarang. Resounding with personal and collective histories, these works consider the formative ways in which language, speech and words solder – or indeed often sever – self with other; the cloudy horizon of history with the clarity of our current moment.
