Kailum Graves uses photography and photographic documentation to generate abstract architectures of data and lived experience. His use of the grid and self-similar pattern structures express a tension between the individual and the collective, similarly found within the pool during a water polo match. Kailum is an emerging artist who has exhibited internationally and nationally, including at the National Portrait Gallery, Canberra; participating in international exhibitions in London, Venice, Rio de Janeiro, and an international conference in Mexico City; undertaken a residency in Iceland; won the 2016 Clayton Utz Art Award; and has been acquired into the Toowoomba Regional Art Gallery’s permanent collection. The 2020 Australian Youth Water Polo Championships are on from 11 – 23 January at venues across Brisbane.
