Quanta Gauld

Quanta Gauld is in the process of completing a Masters in Fine Art with a practical focus in kinetic sculpture and new media. She holds a Bachelor of Arts in Fine Art from The University of Cape Town (Michaelis School of Fine Art). Her current research aims to analyse a disconnect between humans and other exploited life, both human and non-human. By referencing the human body as a relatable site of violence, pain, and loss, through the materiality of kinetic sculpture, she attempts to establish an emotional connection between the viewer and the work to mend the disconnect between humans and the exploited living world.
