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.
