This mixture of different disciplines –for example, through Kate’s sculptural installations and my PhD dissertation and experiments with video – resulted in building dialogues.
About Kate Royle
After graduating in Interactive Arts from Manchester School of Art in 2008 Kate has co-ordinated Urbis Creatives Collective, organizing and curating their website launch and various exhibitions. She has produced a number of performative works as well as working in sculpture and installation and is interested in collaboration and its potential to challenge and affect the creative process.
Sensitivity to the environments in Kate Royle's work stems from growing up in different parts of the world. Kate is interested in the methods and concepts of the creative process. The majority of her most recent work incorporates performative processes in creating site-specific sculptural interventions, including outdoor weather-dependant works.
To investigate these ideas, rules and restrictions are intentionally employed by the artist. Creating work within a given amount of time, limited resources and materials or adapting sculptural work to a specific space are added pressures that all affect the spontaneity and unpredictability of the outcomes.
Sculpturally, Kate focuses on the concepts of natural vs. synthetic and draws influence from the body and organic forms.
