IN RESIDENCE 2019
Maxwell will develop, strengthen and broaden her sculptural practice. Since 2016 she has manifested art works regarding her pedagogic experiences into large and mid-scaled sculptures that have been shown in multiple sites. Whilst at Bundanon, Maxwell wishes to further the exploration into the kinetic sculptural field with a focus on developing water-based sculptures, experimenting with kinetic energy and drawing upon life experiences.Kym Maxwell is an interdisciplinary artist and curator, working in social fields of art with a developing interest in the production of kinetic sculptures. Maxwell holds a Masters of Fine Arts from Monash University, Masters of Education from RMIT and a Bachelor of Fine Arts (Drawing) at VCA.
Maxwell's current practice is concerned with the relationship between education and social space, language and psychology. Her most recent work has interrogated educational contexts to produce a myriad of performative and installation outcomes in digital and print media and events.
In 2018 and 2019, Maxwell will produce a major new work for international exhibit Shapes of Knowledge at Monash University Museum of Art, curated by Hannah Mathews. Currently she is working on a Creative Learning Partnership with Dandenong Primary School, funded by Creative Victoria, which will culminate in an outdoor theatre work Objects of Longing produced with sound composer Daniel Jenatsch and students. In addition, the publication The Consequence was published exploring the field of pedagogic projects and her with Collingwood College Theatre Troupe A Wharfie's Story, designed by Public Office.
