Kelly Agius is an artist based in Metro Detroit, MI. She received a BFA from College for Creative Studies with a minor in Critical Theory. She went on to obtain her MFA in Sculpture at Cranbrook Academy of Art in Bloomfield Hills, MI.
Kelly’s practice examines how our psyche stores, represses, and recalls traumatic childhood experiences by reflecting on symptoms of fear, dissociation, derealization, loneliness, sleep disturbances, abandonment, and behavioral constrictions.Her making isolates and magnifies common household spaces used for hiding, storage and comfort — specifically where objects or bodies tend to become lost, ignored, and forgotten. Her work seeks to illustrate emotional suffering through methods of sewing, fabrication, and drawing to generate a haunting dreamlike mood for the viewer to bear witness to.
