Kim Anderson | Hiding in Plain Sight

Hiding in Plain Sight
Kim Anderson
28 November – 16 December 2017

Hiding in Plain Sight centres around Kim Anderson’s personal experience of eating disorders and mental illness over the past twelve years, as well as exploring more universal themes of grief, yearning, confusion, despair and finally, hope. Both a disclosure and a form of therapy, with a hint of dark humour she peels back the protective layers normally displayed to the world to expose a deeply personal journey of intense emotional scrutiny.

“Close observational drawing has always formed the core of my practice. Through my drawing I am able to peel back the protective layers I display to the outside world and undertake a deeply personal journey of intense psychological scrutiny, exploring my deepest responses to the world around me.”

Kim Anderson holds Bachelor of Fine Arts (First Class Honours) from the University of Ballarat, and in 2007 was awarded a scholarship to study a Master of Fine Art at the University of Dundee in Scotland. Since then Kim has undertaken a number of residencies around the world including an Australia Council Studio Residency at the British School at Rome, at Australia House in Echigo-Tsumari, Japan and Hospitalfield House in Arbroath, Scotland. In 2016 she undertook a three-month residency at DRAWinternational in Caylus, France, which was supported by the Ian Potter Cultural Trust, the Copyright Agency Creative Industries Career Fund, and Creative Partnerships Australia.

In 2010 Kim received an ArtStart Grant from the Australia Council, and she has been a finalist in numerous national awards including the Paul Guest Award, the Rick Amor Drawing Prize, and the Hazelhurst Art Award. Along with more traditional works on paper, Kim has also created ephemeral installation projects involving site-specific drawing and projection, most notably in Scotland and Tasmania. Her most recent large-scale project was The Space Between, a visual/sound installation at the inaugural White Night Ballarat in March 2017 which had an outstanding response. Next year Kim will be featured in the inaugural Biennale of Australian Art (BOAA) in September with a solo exhibition at the Art Gallery of Ballarat.
