Katrina Palmer

Palmer works with storytelling, distributing fragmented elements of narrative across found sites, audio environments, printed matter and performance. The site of writing and the process of attempting to materialise, edit and reformulate ideas is often articulated through the work. Attentive to uncertainties, bodily vulnerabilities and insecure environments, these situated narratives invite the audience to consider objects that are indicated, but not fully present.

Exhibitions include ‘The Coffin Jump’ (solo: Yorkshire Sculpture Park, co-commissioned by 14-18 NOW as part of the nation-wide WWI centenary commemorations, 2018); ‘The Time-Travelling Circus: the revised dossier concerning Pablo Fanque and the Electrolier’ (solo: Brotherton Library, University of Leeds, 2017); ‘The Necropolitan Line’ (solo: Henry Moore Institute, Leeds, 2015 – image below); ‘End Matter/The Loss Adjusters/The Quarryman’s Daughters’ (solo: Artangel, 2015); and ‘Reality Flickers’ in MirrorCity (group: Hayward Gallery, London, 2014). Among her publications are ‘Absalon’s Cells’ in The Object (Documents of Contemporary Art series, Whitechapel Gallery/MIT, 2014), The Dark Object (Book Works, 2010), The Fabricators Tale (Book Works, 2014) and End Matter (Book Works, 2015). She received the Paul Hamlyn Award for Artists, 2014.
