Temple Bar Gallery + Studios is delighted to present artist Katrina Palmer in the second talk in the Masterclass Series. The Masterclass Series invites visiting international artists to participate in public talks and a series of sessions which engage with TBG+S Studio Artists on collective, as well as, one-to-one basis. Artists Mark Titchner, Katrina Palmer and Mike Nelson were selected and invited by TBG+S Studio Artists as artists who inspire them.

Katrina Palmer will discuss her artistic practice to date. Her work proposes sculpture as a language-based activity. Sculpture’s association with bodily presence on the one hand, and death or memorial on the other, is articulated in live readings, installed audio recordings and printed texts. Fictions are narrated by multiple overlaid voices with found objects and fabricated scenarios, accompanied by strategically employed melodramatic soundtracks.

Katrina Palmer lives and works in London. In 2013 Katrina was one of the selected artists to win Open, a competition ran by BBC Radio 4 and Artangel. Katrina is represented by MOTInternational Gallery, London.
