Katie Paterson: Ideas
27 June – 27 September 2014
Katie Paterson’s work is cross-medium, multi-disciplinary and conceptually driven, with an emphasis on nature and cosmology. Ideas presents her most recent work, including Fossil Necklace (for which Paterson was awarded the 2014 South Bank Sky Arts Award), which captures the history of our planet in a single string of beads.
Ideas also includes the culmination of Second Moon, a year-long project in which a fragment of the moon has been circling the earth via airfreight courier, landing, finally, in the Ingleby Gallery at the end of the exhibition. Other works include a series of meteorites, melted at several thousand degrees and recast from their own material as identical versions of their former selves.
Katie Paterson was born in Glasgow in 1981 and has already enjoyed widespread success, taking part in the Tate Triennial (2009) and exhibiting at Modern Art Oxford (2008) the Bonniers Konsthall, Stockholm (2009), BALTIC, Gateshead (2010) and the BAWAG Foundation (2012). In 2013 she had solo shows at the Mead Gallery, Warwick, and Kettles Yard, Cambridge.
Ideas will be accompanied by a summer-long performance of Paterson's 2008 work Earth-Moon-Earth at Jupiter Artland.
Part of GENERATION, a landmark series of exhibitions celebrating 25 years of contemporary art in Scotland.
