Katie Taylor

I am fascinated with exploring our place in the world, the fragility of life and death and the precariousness of our existence. I am drawn to use historical reference within my work. Forensic anthropology and its use to determine individuality is a continuing theme. My work conceptually explores these themes.
I currently work in a variety of media to create sculptural installations that explore the interface between materiality and memory. I am interested in extending and exploring ideas of how we are remembered beyond death by means of our possessions as well as the conceptual and emotional content of objects.

TEXTILE PRACTICE STATEMENT
As a textile artist I try to push the possibilities and boundaries of what textile art can be, often utilizing and combining materials not normally associated with textiles. I create sculptural forms, exploring materials that speak directly of the theme. I want my work to move the viewer to ask questions, of the work, of themselves, of their own place in the world.
