Kate Just

Collection: Handmade#2

Just is an American born Australian feminist artist best known for her inventive and political use of knitting. In addition to her solo practice, Just often works socially and collaboratively within communities to create large scale, public art projects that tackle significant social issues including sexual harassment and violence against women.

Self Care Action arose out of Just’s well-known social justice and feminist art practice and reflects the artist’s knitted meditation on the actions required to sustain oneself to do challenging work in a confronting world. This body of work explores the radical history of self-care and its relevance to feminist practice by artists working for social change.
