Katy B Plummer is an installation artist working across video, textile and sculpture. Her practice is driven by material and narrative, with a heavy focus on costume and domestic ladycrafts. Katy’s installations often point to domestic environments in revolt against their function. She is interested in theatre, the phenomenology of radical politics, fraught/failed/ambivalent femininity, and in the mytho-poetic possibilities of history. Katy slathers a thick layer of bathetic slapstick over our efforts to transcend our animal selves.
Katy completed her BFA at COFA and her MFA at the School of Visual Arts in New York. Katy’s contribution to Runway Issue 34 [Failure] YOUNG SHEEP THINKING ALOUD FROM INSIDE THE MOUTH OF A LION is part of a larger project titled THE HOOVED AND THE CLAWED WILL CONSIDER THEIR VIOLENT BONDTHE HOOVED AND THE CLAWED WILL CONSIDER THEIR VIOLENT BOND will show in its entirety at Galerie Pompom in late 2017.
