“Nobody is free, even the birds are chained to the sky.” -Bob Dylan

Hailing from the east coast of Australia, John Kaye migrated west to the sunny city of Perth to undertake a residency at The Butcher Shop. His show ‘Chained to the Sky’ saw work created inside and outside of the studio with overarching themes concerning freedom and a transient lifestyle. John reflects on his most recent body swilling a glass of red, overlooking the yard from a fold up chair on his makeshift verandah.
