The Art of Survival – In Conversation

with Kasia Töns & Heidi Kenyon


Free Entry


Ararat Gallery TAMA



Saturday 15th June 2024, 2pm

Join Panoply exhibiting artist Kasia Töns and artist/writer Heidi Kenyon in a discussion about creativity as a form of resilience. Heidi will talk to Kasia about her processes of making art in times of precarity, with an emphasis on feminist ways of knowing and being in the world.

The artists will then invite the audience to ask questions and participate in the conversation as they explore the healing powers of community.

This event will run for 45 – 60 minutes, followed by Q&A with attendees. Tea, coffee and light refreshments will be provided.


About the artists

Kasia Töns is a textile artist working and living on Peramangk Country (Adelaide Hills). Hand embroidery and mask making are central to her practice, which sits at the intersection of art, fashion, and craft. Her process is slow and intuitive, colourful, and expressive. The labour and time invested in creating her work acts as an antidote to the fast pace of the modern world and the addictive seeking of instant gratification through digital means. Recurring thematic interests include social impacts of digital technology use, the Anthropocene, and interpersonal/interspecies relationship dynamics.


Heidi Kenyon is a contemporary visual artist and writer based on Kaurna land in Adelaide, South Australia. Her practice seeks to encourage viewers to find meaning and magic in everyday places, objects and rituals through sculpture, installation, sound-based work and public art.  Heidi is currently undertaking a PhD with the University of Tasmania, working off-campus from a home studio in the hills. Her research interests explore collaboration with nature and more-than-human entities as a driver for social change within contemporary sculpture and installation practice.
