Artist in Residence – Katie Kotler

Katie Kotler is a Toronto-based artist. Her practice explores how the physicality of animation can be translated into installation art. She is also interested in how lineages of art histories meld into another, often in previously unnoticed ways. Kotler creates immersive and self-reflexive atmospheres that use as lo-fi materials as possible.

Whilst at NES,  Katie plans to work on  animations that will be featured in her  upcoming installation, entitled “Permanent Fixtures.” This work involves animation, installation and projection using bathroom furniture. It marks an initial pursuit to ask how can one create an environment that both accommodates and honours one’s needs for rest and art?
