Articulating the slipperiness of the half-escaped thought

Kaijern Koo
Skye Malu Baker

03 February 2022–26 February 2022

Hauntings come upon us in the most understated, subtle of ways, and to notice them requires a quietness that allows room for the undefined to reveal itself – even if only faintly. A fleeting movement in a doorway, half-glimpsed in the corner of the eye; a presence felt, but not seen, chaperoning us on a solitary walk; artefacts of the deep past, dug from the earth, taciturnly holding secrets from civilisations long gone. In Articulating the slipperiness of the half-escaped thought, Kaijern Koo and Skye Malu Baker explore everyday hauntings made possible by liminal spaces.

  • Kaijern Koo is an artist who lives and works on Wurundjeri land in Naarm/Melbourne. She graduated with a BFA from the Victorian College of the Arts in 2019 and has since exhibited solo shows at TCB and Daine Singer, and participated in group exhibitions held at BLINDSIDE, George Paton Gallery, Trocadero, and the Margaret Lawrence. In 2019 she received the NGV Women’s Association Award. She is interested in the fantastic slipperiness of interpretation as the fallibility of structures and frameworks is revealed to have been built on little more than belief.
  • Skye Malu Baker is a painter and object maker currently based in Naarm/Melbourne. Influenced by fragments of cultural histories, the temporal slipperiness of the autobiographical and the active properties of the technologies and materials with which she collaborates, her practice is curious about unstable, inconsistent narratives, and their potential to make way for the poetic and unsayable. She completed a Bachelor of Fine Arts (Honours) at Victoria College of the Arts in 2020, and has since shown at C A V E S, Blindside, Trocadero, and George Paton Gallery.
