Ali Kirby creates sculptural assemblages and installations that physically respond to the built environment. Ordinary construction materials are re-used to create seemingly solid structures that reveal their fragility upon closer inspection. Her approach to materials is intuitive, often using muted colours, soft textures and hard edges to create various surfaces and forms normally associated with architecture.
