The Border Art Residency welcomes new artist-in-residence, Freya Gabie

The Border Art Residency is excited to welcome our new Artist-in-Residence Freya Gabie! Freya comes to us from UK, where she studied sculpture at Chelsea College of Art and the Royal College of Art.

Her practice is site responsive: focusing on connection and exchange. She works across media, seeking to disrupt the intimate and unconscious interchange between people and place.

Her work is concerned with drawing out social narratives manifest within objects, artifacts, songs and stories found in specific contexts. It seeks to reveal the ways these histories are expressed; how they re-tell the past, or express a version of the present, framing personal and cultural identity.

Welcome, Freya! We are happy to have you in the Sun City for a few months.
