Kate Beynon in ‘Das Kapital’, NotFair Art Foundation
The animated video work Spirits Summoning (2023), produced by Kate Beynon, Rali Beynon and Michael Pablo (aka TudoFam) is on show at the group exhibition ‘Das Kapital’. Organised by NotFair Art Foundation, the exhibition centres around the theme of value and commerce, presenting works by over 50 artists within the vaults and halls of the former union bank in Prahran. Curated by Amanda Morgan, Kieran Boland and Brie Trenerry, this exhibition of film, video art, and new media within a physical space characterised by decay and transition draws our attention to mediums affiliated with the “immaterial” in order to question the value of cultural capital.
Combining experimental watercolour and digital techniques, Spirits Summoning features a cast of supernatural characters (adapted from the KB X RB—Mask Spirits collaborative series) brought to life as unconventional protective figures appearing amidst aquatic backdrops, kaleidoscopic serpentine patterns and botanical forms. Accompanied by an atmospheric soundtrack, the work aims to create an otherworldly dreamscape to counteract troubled times.

‘Dog Robot Space Star: A Two Cathies Collaboration’ reviewed in Artlink by Jane Trengove
The exhibition Dog Robot Space Star: A Two Cathies Collaboration at Gertrude Contemporary by Catherine Bell and Cathy Staughton, also known as ‘The Two Cathies’, has been featured in ArtLink. In a review by fellow artist Jane Trengove, the article considers the conceptual efficacy of the exhibition, remarking on how “the works of Dog Robot Space Star tackle a duality of care, within the disability space and the human interface with artificial intelligence.”
Working collaboratively since 2009, Catherine Bell and Cathy Staughton have established a unique bond shaped by a shared visual language, social media, painting, filmmaking, a love of dogs, grief, loss and empathy. The exhibition Dog Robot Space Star: A Two Cathies Collaboration was on show at Gertrude Contemporary, Melbourne, between 21 April – 20 May 2023.
