ART Habens

internationally, showcasing your work in several occasions both in the United States and In Europe as well in Australia. So before leaving this conversation I would like to pose a question about the nature of the relationship of your art with your audience. Do you consider the issue of audience reception as being a crucial component of your decision-making process, in terms of what type of language is used in a particular context?

Yes, audience reception is important. Making work that can become part of a wider conversation and relevant in a cultural moment is important to me. Projects like Manual of Arms are also culturally specific, and will read very differently in different countries because it is directly about gun culture and militarization. This conversation varies widely depending on context. Making work that is related to specific places, is a way of paying attention to experience in those places. Thanks a lot for your time and for sharing your thoughts, Kate. Finally, would you like to tell our readers something about your future projects? How do you see your work evolving?

I have several ideas for future video projects, involving groups of people that combine a theatrical approach to performance to exaggerate the everyday. I also plan to continue current interdisciplinary projects that combine 2D and 3D approaches.
