Caitlin Devoy

Caitlin Devoy is a sculptor working in Whanganui-a-Tara (Wellington), Aotearoa (New Zealand). Caitlin Devoy’s work is simultaneously seductive and unnerving, sensual and neutered, excoriating and tender. Devoy’s practice embraces the transgressive power of the comedic as both honey and sting, revealing the power relations encoded in representations of the body. The sculptures subvert everyday objects whose specific functions and tactile associations are familiar to the viewer. Her material choices underscore the humour, imbuing the objects with bodily characteristics and undermining binary representations of masculinity and femininity.
