'Corridors and Continuums' by Kate Stone

Exhibition opens at Aalto Studios 13.10.22 at 16:00

Kate Stone’s work encompasses installation, sculpture, photography and animation to explore the domestic uncanny and architectural narratives involving time and place, memory and mythology, fact and fiction. Her photographic and animated works use collage techniques and miniature sets to create distorted interiors that imagine the language of architecture, how it speaks and what it says, especially when we are not around to hear it. They are labyrinthine, liminal worlds that exist somewhere between interior and exterior, between reality and superstition. The uninhabited rooms are psychological spaces - the fuzzy architecture of dreams or memories - that are often in the midst of transformation, being overtaken by natural, supernatural or invisible forces. These forces serve as stand-ins for the anxiety that current world events bring into our personal lives and private spaces.

Corridors and Continuums includes four complete animations and two works-in-progress. “The Dancing Ground” is an ongoing project that Stone adds to each summer at the Mudhouse Residency in rural Greece. “Untitled (HARMAA Work in Progress)” is an animation made here in Finland, in collaboration with the HARMAA research group and with support from the Kone Foundation.

Kate received a BA from Bard College and an MFA from Parsons the New School for Design. She has been awarded the Tierney Fellowship, The Lotos Foundation Prize, an FST StudioProjects Grant and a Kone Foundation Grant. Her self-published book, “How We End,” was shortlisted for the Aperture Foundation Photobook Awards. She has attended residencies at NARS Foundation, Artists Alliance LES Studio Program, Kone Foundation and Mudhouse Residency in rural Greece. She also has an upcoming residency at Mass MoCA in Spring 2023. Her work has been exhibited at 601Artspace, bitforms gallery, Cuchifritos Gallery + Project Space, Dinner Gallery, FiveMyles, Ortega y Gasset Projects, Rubber Factory, Spring Break Art Show, South Bend Museum of Art, The Museum of Broken Relationships and Transmitter Gallery, among others.
