Transposing the archaeological idea of ‘prehistory’ onto the brief span of subjective experience, in these new works Kilmartin conflates the forms of Neolithic stone structures with cast and carved versions of quotidian objects. Lost to language and memory, the function, meaning and significance of these objects can only be experienced in space and speculation.

Ash Kilmartin’s recent solo exhibitions include The Perpetual Planner, rm gallery, Auckland; STOP WORK, Y3K, Melbourne; RAIN: A one-day sculpture garden, 242 Young Street, Fitzroy, Melbourne; and Unforeseen Employment, George Fraser Gallery, Auckland.
