Zoe Knight’s studio practice is shaped by her interest in the materiality of objects, discovering and abstracting found industrial materials, and relationships between object, exhibition space and viewer. Influenced by Robert Morris, Eva Hesse and Mikala Dwyer, Zoe explores the tactile relationships between material, process and space through small-scale and floor-based installations. Currently, Zoe seeks to draw the viewer’s attention to an awareness of their body in the space and the features of the gallery itself. This is achieved through mapping the gallery floor with miniature-sized objects grouped in relation to one another and coupled with dramatic lighting. Objects are arranged with their formal and aesthetic features in mind especially balance, texture and shape. Through developing her practice Zoe hopes to challenge these ideas and gain a better understanding of how her version of minimal installation fits within contemporary art today.
Zoe holds a Bachelor of Fine Art (Honours) from Queensland University of Technology (2014) and has exhibited across artist-run galleries and festivals in Brisbane and Melbourne.
