Kay Abude is a visual artist living and working in Naarm (Melbourne, Australia). She has an expanded sculptural practice working in large-scale installation, photography, performance, video and silk screen printing. Abude’s work is about work itself: the value of it, the effort, the inequality and insecurity of it, especially for artists. Since leaving art school in 2010, Abude has worked in higher education and the university sector to support her art practice. In February 2022, Abude swapped white collar work for a blue collar job at the docks and now works as a stevedore.
