Statement
Katie Garth is a print-based artist in Philadelphia. Her interdisciplinary practice investigates tensions between the everyday lived experience and the otherworldly and sublime. Across cyanotypes, risography, video, installation, and other media, she positions tedium as a coping mechanism from the persistent chaos and seeming insignificance that pervade our contemporary experience. Garth explores the uncanniness of mundane rituals, asking how routine provokes escapism, and from what we may be escaping. By dislocating the familiar, she highlights the highly constructed nature of consciousness, and reveals the mysterious potential of the banal.
