Kate Just is an Australian visual artist best known for elaborate knitted sculptures and mixed media installations. Just creates figurative and abstract representations of the body and skin, large text-works, tools, armours and knitted banners. Her central interest is the questioning and reframing of historic or iconographic representations of gender from an autobiographical, subjective or embodied perspective. Just's work often pauses in a moment of personal transition or struggle, yielding an image of intimacy with the self or others to promote a vision of hope for the future. Just's intensively crafted works challenge stereotypes of knitting as a domestic craft, recasting it as an engaging sculptural medium and a tool of critical investigation and self-discovery.
