Visual artist Kieran Stewart will be at REmida during July. As part of a one month REmida Artist Residency he is conducting a community art project entitled Vexilloid.
Kieran will be informally interviewing City of Vincent residents to create flags / banners that reflect the individual’s place and role in the immediate geographic area. Each banner will serve as a marker of heritage, lifestyle, interests, place and space and will be displayed in a public space. The project encourages reflection on the sometimes fragmented nature of contemporary lifestyle and the micro state of community interaction
Kieran Stewart is a Melbourne based visual artist who works across the mediums of video, image making and sculptural installation. His practice revolves around the themes of exhaustive labour and physical and mental exhaustion. Over the past eight years he has shown nationally in both artist-run initiatives and public institutions across Australia.
