Little Women in Mixed Media

April 2016


Artist Kirsten Biven has generated a series of 8 mixed media art pieces from collaborative processes during winery psalms workshops for the interdisciplinary artwork, 1868 Alcott Chenin Blanc. Each of the finished pieces are 35cm X 25cm (unmounted) and hold a value of $350.00 each when mounted. Developed from drawings of dancers Katie Chown, Jacqui Otago and Esther Scott during rehearsals with choreographer Frances Barbe, composer Anna-Kat Hicks as well as artist Kirsten Biven, each work offers a glimpse of a creative process in an artistic product. 


The provocation for the 1868 Alcott Chenin Blanc artistic work was a quote from the novel Little Women by Louisa May Alcott: “I’m not afraid but it seems as if I should be homesick for you even in heaven” (1868). The artists’ response to this provocation was an invitation to the viewer to respond: Taste the unashamedly nostalgic flavour of sweet sorrow etched into the threads of time. Joyful notes of spring and roses burst through smoky reminiscence to delicately weave a waltz of memories.

December 20, 2015: A Cellar Showing

A Cellar Showing of the 1970 Morrison Sparkling piece, featuring the collaborative artwork created by Remnant core artists; Ellen Avery, Katie Chown, & Julie Valenzuela and collaborators Anna-Kat, Jo Darvall, Digby Hill, Jacqui Otago, Scott Putman, Caroline Stevenson, & Joanna Tan.

The showing at Young George started with canapés and a glass of the Cape Mentelle Sauvigon Blanc as guests mingled with artists and enjoyed the visual artworks by W.A. artist Jo Darvall.  Later in the evening a tasting of sparking wine was poured, and the dancers moved into the space to perform a segment of Putman's choreography, accompanied by live musicians Anna-Kat, Digby Hill, & Julie Valenzuela, performing their original composition. After the dance there was an artist statement session, where ideas and background stories were shared by the artists, followed by audience Q&A. 

This piece in its entirety will be a part of the 'winery psalms' production, presented by Remnant Dance, hosted by Fillaudeau's Restaurant and featuring wines by Pinelli Estate 15-21 April 2016, in the Swan Valley, Western Australia.
