BY KATIE PAINE
Katie Paine will undertake a residency to develop the project An Unsound Mimicry. This project considers the role language plays as a tool for communication and human understanding. Paine’s work uses prose embedded within installation to evoke alternate engagements with institutional bodies of knowledge. She creates fictions to explore our collective conceptualisation of time and the way systems of meaning-making are culpable of perpetuating fraught narratives: particularly regarding our understanding of history. The acts of speaking, reading and writing function as tools used to communicate information: An Unsound Mimicry critically considers the fallible, porous and mutable potential embedded in each of these systems.
Throughout the residency, the Ferryman’s Hut will become a studio space to create performance, installation and a body of fiction.
An Unexpected Line of Inquiry
An Unexpected Line of Inquiry is an informal discussion group taking place as part of Katie Paine’s Metro Arts residency, An Unsound Mimicry. This project explores the nature of artistic research by giving voice to ideas that sit outside practitioner’s primary discourses. This online ‘meeting’ allows for artists, writers and researchers to come together to discuss the more tangential aspects of their research: ideas considered aberrant, irrelevant or unresolved.
The first meeting will be held on Monday 8th June at 11am. If you would like to be involved, please contact Katie at firstname.lastname@example.org
