Kathleen Montgomery

Body Memory Architecture

This play is a reflection on the (im)possibility of accepting diversity and the other. The fragmented body of the neoplasm—the fruit of unstable conditions—overcomes barriers, loves and denies itself and others, wanders around, forgetting its profession. It frequently and with pleasure divides, goes through dangerous palpation, questions the possibility of contact with the experience of the other. Poorly brought up but very successful, it invites us to a trans-species transition.

Kathleen Montgomery explores the dialogue between an object and the space that surrounds it through a variety of media such as drawing, print, sculpture and site-specific installations. Montgomery’s residency at the Mattress Factory will allow her to utilize the entire 2,000 square foot space available at the museum’s 1414 Monterey Street gallery. This early twentieth-century building with first-floor storefront and domestically-scaled rooms on two additional floors, will provide Montgomery with a physical “sketchbook” to focus on the tangible activity of creation through the exploration of the materials within an enclosed studio environment. This will be the first time in more than 20 years that Montgomery’s body of work will be shown as part of a cohesive exhibition.

About The Artist

Kathleen Montgomery is a visual artist who makes drawings, limited edition prints, three-dimensional objects, and site-specific installations. Whether purely abstract or tending toward the figural, the minimal elemental forms in her work emerge from an exploration of the materials she chooses to use, the physical experiences these materials make available, and the spaces in which this exploration takes place.

Her work has been exhibited at museums, galleries, colleges and universities throughout the United States and Europe, including the Carnegie Museum of Art, Pittsburgh, PA; John Good Gallery, New York; Trish Higgins Fine Art, Wichita, KS; Galerie Detour, Namur, Belgium; Central Arts, Tuscon, AZ; Chamaliere, France; Stedman Art Gallery, Camden, NJ, and many more.

Her work is in the permanent collection at the Carnegie Museum of Art and the Heinz Endowment.
