In, from and with
Pattie Beerens. I create living, on-going collaborative engagements with the world as art to explore relations of kinship with the materials of the world – including the human. Made with white clays respectfully collected from a mine site on Wadawurrung Country and branches gathered on morning walks, 'in, from and with' is the trace of four hands listening, wondering, nurturing, and weaving. “On one side I experienced self-doubt, angst and fear. I could see the ribbon was tight, taught and angular. When I moved around, I was flowing more easily… there are two souls or energies in the form” (Bella - weaver) I am a published writer, have won various awards including 2021 Toorak Village Sculpture Award, have works in prestigious art collections and recently completed a Master of Fine Arts (RMIT). @pattiebeerens / www.beerens.net.au
