'Eartongue' sculpture by Katie Ryan as part of group exhibition 'A message in the collar' at Hobiennale 2019.

Eartongue, 2019

Burnished clay, acrylic, brushed chrome, suspension wire

'Eartongue' was exhibited as part of 'A message in the collar' a group exhibition at Hobart Town Hall Underground, Tasmania as part of HoBiennale 2019. 

A message in the collar’ brings together a selection of artists whose practices engage with notions of disclosure from a critical, literary, historical and personal perspective.

The artists employ strategies of confession, refrain, encryption and material syntax to shift the way we engage with language, images and signifiers. The artists wrangle with our contemporary means of communication, one that appears at once transparent and highly circulated as well as obfuscated and opaque.

These works are further informed by an inclination to circumvent current forms of artistic consumption and dissemination, gradually revealing meaning through prolonged engagement.

This project has been made possible by CONSTANCE ARI INC., HOBIENNALE, Hobart City Council, the Australian Council for the Arts and the Regional Arts Fund.
