Rising up on the Norfolk Broads, a community of waterways within the japanese lobe of England which are largely navigable by boat, Kate MccGwire explored the realm’s wetlands and noticed wildlife that might set in movement an inventive apply centered in nature. The artist is understood for her site-specific installations and serpentine sculptures that incorporate hundreds of chicken feathers into otherworldly specimens that writhe, squish, and spill.

Usually there’s an obfuscation of what we all know to be actual and a shift that permits a form of reverie and suspension of actuality, and as a result of convincing placement of the feathers over pure undulating kinds, the impression that it may very well be actual, that it may transfer, stream, and uncoil. —Kate MccGwire

MccGwire speaks on this interview concerning the tensions and dualities between containment and motion, attraction and revulsion, and nature and the self.
