Fleur And Charles Bresler Residency
(Born in 1979, Canada, currently living in Toronto, Canada) Katie Kehoe predominantly works in performance, installation and drawing, and often incorporate duration, site-specificity, photography and video as defining artistic elements. She completed her M.F.A. at the Maryland Institute College of Art, Baltimore, Maryland (2011); and formerly completed the Canadian Film Center Media Lab’s Interactive Art and Entertainment Program, Toronto, Canada (2007); and earned a B.A. Honors from Saint Mary’s University, Halifax, Canada (2002). Kehoe’s work has been presented across Canada and the U.S. and widely reviewed by critics such as Gary Michael Dault (Canada’s leading art critic), Becky Hunter in Art Papers Magazine and Eames Armstrong in Performa Magazine.
In light of our climate change, I have growing uncertainty and deep concerns for what the future holds – this is reflected in my work. Recently, for example, I produced, PIER/PLATFORMS, for which I traveled through the southwest, USA, salvaging materials, building a pier and installing it in unconventional locations, treating it as a platform for reflection and communication and pointing to the growing threat of climate change, limited access to clean water and accelerated rate of waste production. Ultimately, a commitment to interaction, communication, adaptive reuse and sustainability form the basis of my creative practice.
