Agatha Gothe-Snape, The Outcome is Certain

“If art keeps good time”, writes Claudia La Rocco, “it keeps us in the present. It’s present”. This statement names precisely the experience of encountering Agatha Gothe-Snape’s recent survey exhibition The Outcome is Certain at Monash University Museum of Art (MUMA). The artist’s close attention to material and relational contexts, as well as the immediate context of the institution, emphasise the specificity of experience and the body as conduit. Curated by Hannah Mathews, the expansive exhibition brings together more than a decade of work, highlighting Gothe-Snape’s dizzying range of production and also her reoccurring methods of collaboration, text, improvisation, performance, duration, language and colour.
