Catherine Pritchard

Statement

I work mostly with video, illustration and poetry. Each project includes multiple works, often in a range of different media. These diverse works interact with one another, culminating in a final set or installation. I create multisensory experiences through the marriage of visual pieces, spoken word and movement, often subtly mocking my subject matter in a revolt against distressing topics. My work serves to make light of weighty emotions, and acts as a dry comedic narrative of particular situations.
