crossconnectmag: Garth Knight works with and photographs rope...


Garth Knight works with and photographs rope and bodies as sculptural forms, creating allegorical installations that combine Zen concepts and pagan mythology with the traditions of kinbaku bondage. His tableaux of intricate, decorative networks connect ideas of strength and pleasure with those of surrender and abandonment. His installations and performance focus on the ritual of making, becoming an act of meditation and a process leading to illumination. He also creates complex digital montages, combining thousands of image fragments to produce scintillating new forms moulded into imagined creatures. His works have been exhibited widely in Australia and internationally and he has self published several books. Born in Tasmania in 1972 he lives and works in Sydney, Australia.
