Baltimore City - Station North A&E District
Riddled with quick erratic pains throughout her body Katie found herself distancing from her body. Fascia is an investigation of the artists corporeal form, granting the artist the ability to understand herself from new and multiple angles. The pattern created for this piece was constructed by the artist directly taping onto herself, essentially producing a second skin. Gently shedding this new skin, she was able to strategically cut out shapes that she would then sew back together in found natural fabrics. Thus, forcing herself to spend hours present and aware of how her body fits together, she exists in this world in search of that lost connection.
In this series of Fiber Hangings I am focusing on the interrelationship between the body and its surroundings. Through the use of visceral textures and embedding different materials into the surface of the works, I am softening the boundaries to create a dialogue with the space and evoke an awareness of ones physical self in relation to the work.
