The Collections Project

Art Gallery of South Australia

4 June 2016

Adelaide-based emerging artist Kate Kurucz has an obsession with detail. She was interested in discovering and bringing to light small, secondary or overlooked details within the Art Gallery of South Australia’s collection. Inspired by a rare and highly valuable 1930s penny with which she had a childhood obsession, Kurucz created two works for The Collections Project that explore themes of fantasy, excess and the sublime. Rich, playful works, they both hide treasure within.

Kate’s work was displayed in Gallery 15 + 17 in the Melrose Wing, Art Gallery of South Australia, North Terrace, Adelaide
