Kate Hill is a Melbourne based artist. Her practice explores temporal engagements with place, utilising site-specific materials such as earth, clay and water to express local contexts through ceramic processes. In the past she has sourced local clay and water from sites to create functional vessels, and in the process of excavation and refinement she explores the place that the materials are coming from, the stories that are held there and the broader environmental and political questions associated with larger scale industries using similar processes. The use of video and photography juxtapose her traditional methods of making, and provide vivid references to actions, stories and place.
