Katie Turnbull is a visual artist, born on Gadigal land (Sydney, Australia) and is currently living in London. She works primarily with the expanded medium and technology of animation, including moving image, sculpture and interactivity. Working with time as a malleable form, Katie’s work utilises metamorphosis, emergence and decay to shift habitual modes of looking, creating suspension in time. She works by collecting; objects, footage, sound, and images. A process of sculpting and material experimentation occurs. Materials chosen have alchemical properties, transforming over time often with unexpected or hard to control outcomes. The work then emerges from material associations and strange timelines.
Katie's projects have been exhibited at Art Night Tokyo (JP), Focal Point Gallery (UK), UNSW Galleries (AU), Channels international biennial of video art (AU) and commissioned by Penrith Regional Gallery (AU) and Experimenta Media Arts (AU). She is a recipient of the Australia Council for the Arts London studio residency, The Freedman Foundation Travelling Scholarship, and the Ian Potter cultural trust grant. She works as a Psychodynamic Art Psychotherapist in the charity sector.
