ARTIST TALK

16/06/2018

Between Us And is open at EMBASSY, Edinburgh until July 1st. Join us today at 2PM for presentations by featured artists Kate Fahey and Marianne Keating.

Kate Fahey works across the boundaries of various mediums including moving images, sound, stills, sculpture, and installation, her practice explores our relationship with images through contemporary screen based perspectives, aerial, satellite and elevated (drones eye) views, particularly through the technological hard and softwares of encounter. Focusing on imagery predominantly appropriated from YouTube, her multidisciplinary fine art practice engages with the surface and materiality of the aerial image, employing metafictional and subjective approaches to disrupt their habitual modes of spectatorship online.

Currently, she is an AHRC funded practice based PhD candidate at the University of the Arts, London, artist in residence at Lewisham Arthouse. She is a recent recipient of the Mead Residency Award to the British School at Rome (2017). Upcoming projects include Repetitive Strain (solo) at Lewisham Arthouse and an Artists’ Exhibition Residency at Leitrim Sculpture Centre (2018). She lives and works in Peckham.
