Kate Rohde

Blue Oyster Gallery, Dunedin, NZ, June, 2003



Animality explores the connections between our understandings of animals and the cultural conditions in which these understandings have been formed.

Kate Rohde investigates the way humans exploit an animal's physical attributes to produce goods for our usage. Kate's work focuses on the Sable, a member of the weasel family. Endowed with a lustrous coat of fur, the Sable’s tail hairs are used to make arguably the best (and most expensive) paint brushes in the world.
