un Podcast No. 2

In this episode, we speak to Saskia Doherty, a Melbourne-based artist whose multi-layered and multi-disciplinary practice examines language, geology and entropy.

 

Doherty is an artist and writer based in Narrm Melbourne. Her work encompasses sculpture, drawing, writing, performance, sound and installation. Her practice examines and aims to unpack structures that turn memory into static form: etymology, photographs, fossils, institutions. Saskia has exhibited in Australia and overseas since graduating with a BFA (Hons) from Monash University in 2013, and has written several pieces of writing and poetry for Australian publications.

This is the second in a series of long-form interviews, which really dig into what an artist does and perhaps why they do it. This podcast is created and produced by Sarah Werkmeister, a freelance writer, editor, researcher, broadcaster and curator based in Melbourne.
