Future work

• Participation in Visiting Artist Programme, University of Stellenbosch, South Africa, 2007. The proposed task for Kate Foster is to make a Blue Antelope Compact Museum. To include drawings of European specimens and - through imagination - recontextualisation of these in its former range in the Cape of South Africa. This artist's initative is a response to the impossibility of seeing the animal itself in South Africa - either alive or as zoological specimens.
