The Outcome is Certain
Agatha Gothe-Snape’s work is characterised by colour, text, minimal aesthetics and an economy of materials. Propelled by doing, moving and making, the Australian artist has straddled various modes of performance and visual arts over the last decade, her work manifesting in PowerPoint presentations, improvised drawings, sculpture, installation, newspaper headlines, gouache sketches, scripts, plaques, billboards, permanent road markings, video, wall painting, architectural interventions, virtual reality, scores, workshops and live performance. Doing a lot with a little, her practice distils the intangible into visual form and highlights the encounter between art and audience, and art and life. The Outcome Is Certain marks the first major monograph tracing Gothe-Snape’s and gives pause to an oeuvre that is conceptually rich, emotionally intelligent and inherently alive.
