Kirsha Kaechele is an artist and curator drawn to the space where complex problems exist. Problems, for Kirsha, are simply a mechanism for art—decay, ugliness, the unwanted, the disaster zone are her medium.
Kirsha’s projects include: 24 Carrot Gardens, which creates kitchen gardens in disadvantaged areas of Tasmania and New Orleans; Heavy Metal, an art-science project addressing the mercury contamination of The River Derwent; Zero Trash / Trascism, Mona’s zero-waste practice (applied to the Mona Market, MOFO (Mona’s music and art festival), and the museum); PS 1 L0V3 U, a Hacking School in New Orleans integrating art, fashion and food; and Eat the Problem, a culinary art solution to the problem of invasive species. Kirsha creates regular feasts as living installations in which every element is performance or artwork.
