The Substation/ Artist/Caitlin Franzmann/
Caitlin Franzmann is a Brisbane-based artist who invites people to slow down, listen and contemplate interactions with their surroundings and with other living entities, including plants, insects, water, rocks and micro-organisms. She creates intimate situations within galleries and public spaces that allow for gathering, conversation and storytelling as a way to encourage reflection on histories, complex ecosystems and environmental concerns specific to a place.
Caitlin has exhibited nationally and internationally, including at National Gallery of Victoria, Institute of Modern Art, Brisbane and Kyoto Art Centre. She was included in Primavera 2014: Young Australian Artists at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Sydney, Passages at New Museum, New York in 2020, TarraWarra Biennial 2021: Slow Moving Waters at TarraWarra Museum of Art, Victoria and Embodied Knowledge: Queensland Contemporary Art at QAGOMA, Brisbane in 2022. She was recipient of the 2014 Churchie National Emerging Art Prize and recently awarded the inaugural Metro Arts Visual Arts Pathfinder Program residency (2022-2023). Caitlin was a member of feminist art collective LEVEL from 2013 to 2017 and is currently a member of, Ensayos, a collective research practice centered on extinction, human geography, coastal health and peatland conservation.
