Kim Jaeger is an artist, facilitator, educator and curator. The idea of functionality is central to Kim’s work and her ongoing interest in sculptural form has lead to the investigation of functionality in art and an interest in how we live with objects in our everyday lives.
Kim has worked on projects with the National Gallery of Victoria, Iwantja Art Centre and for the City of Melbourne. She has exhibited her work in Los Angeles, Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane and Adelaide and her work is held in private collections in the United Kingdom, USA, Europe, Canada, Australia & New Zealand.
NEW PRIMITIVES SERIES
Kim Jaeger’s ceramic work examines the functionality of art. She is interested in the way in which people interact with art and the function it plays within their domestic space. In the current series, Jaeger looks at the idea of adornment, and the way it shifts between disguise and embellishment. By utilising a muted palette, the pieces are reduced to a singular chromatic arrangement, whilst gold ornamentation creates repetitive patterns that mimic both classical art and the natural world.
