Karin van Roosmalen
Much Like A Traveller
April 6 - May 10, 2004
This work in The Kiosk forms an extension of Karin's concurrent installation in the Physics Room project space Sampler series. Her process-based practice has led to a site-responsive project looking at our habitation of space, the miniature dressmakers' workbench in The Kiosk is one part of the variously scaled components deployed by van Roosmalen in Much Like A Traveller .
Karin van Roosmalen was born and raised in Christchurch, with two generations of her family setting up and conducting clothing businesses in the neighbourhood - The Physics Room and The Kiosk are situated in the old manufacturing and commercial precinct of Christchurch. Karin's work in The Kiosk acknowledges this history, as well as the influence of tailoring structures on the temporary and fluid look of her installation works.
