009: Charlotte Watson relays the unspeakable

Charlotte Watson is a New Zealand artist based in Melbourne. She completed her degree in Christchurch majoring in sculpture and we discuss how this has informed her drawing, which is now Charlotte’s main medium.

In this episode we discuss social media and privacy, how important reading is to her practice - particularly ‘The Sick Bag Song’ by Nick Cave, and how we need to also address the economy when working towards gender equality in the arts.


/ Charlotte’s TWS portrait and interview is on our website at https://thiswildsong.com.au/charlotte-watson/

/ Charlotte’s new work ‘All Our Secrets Are The Same’ opens at Bundoora Homestead Art Centre on the 22nd of September 1-4pm, and the exhibition continues until the 11th of November.
