Bronwyn Katz is interested in the near-invisible frontiers that separate communities in the same space. Her fragile sculptures, knitted at great length and comprising materials that sometimes bear the marks of a past life, speak of the collective memory that underlies territories. In the Fagor Factory, Katz’s installation spreads forth from floor and ceiling, like a luxuriant bush. Crafted in metal wire and steel wool, it refers, says the artist, to Lyon’s industrial landscape, while also referencing a site of rock carvings near the city where she was born.
