KIKA THORNE

Kika Thorne completed her MFA at the University of Victoria in 2007 where she studied with artists Lynda Gammon, Luanne Martineau and philosopher Taneli Kukkonen. She has participated in creating collaborative, temporary, public sculptures to protest the erosion of democracy but only recently emerged as an autonomous sculptor since her return to the West Coast. Her large-scale, ambient abstractions are suspended in tension and appear to construct an agreement out of ordinary materials. The Pink Black Hole was included in Gasoline Rainbows, curated by Jenifer Papararo at the Contemporary Art Gallery. Octave was installed as a part of Enacting Abstraction, curated by Daina Augaitis at the Vancouver Art Gallery. She is currently exhibiting in The Cast of Shadows, curated by Jesse Birch at Access Gallery.

Other exhibitions include Zones, Art Gallery of Hamilton; The disOrder of things, Kino Arsenal, Berlin; Old Habits Die Hard, Berlin, Norwich, Oslo, Dresden, Istanbul; E Flux Video Rental, Berlin, Budapest, Boston, New York, Austin, Frankfurt, Lisbon, Paris; Canary Islands Biennale of Art & Architecture; State of Emergency, Open Space, Victoria; Street Scene, Murray Guy, New York; Elastic, The Apartment, Vancouver.
