Peat harbours a complex history, synonymous with broader social, political and ecological issues. However humble, it is emblematic of the inextricable link between man and nature. Taking peat as its subject, this exhibition of drawings and cast forms is both an enquiry into – and an ode to the significance of peat as matter of great consequence.
Since graduating from Fine Arts at the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology, Kotsoglo has completed arts residencies in Iceland (SIM Residency, NES Residency) and Scotland (The Bothy Project), and exhibited both nationally and internationally as part of group and solo exhibitions. Her work is held in private collections around the world.
