Katie Paterson has become known for her multidisciplinary and conceptually-driven work with an emphasis on nature, ecology, geology and cosmology. Many of her poetic installations have been the result of intensive research and collaboration with specialists as diverse as Astronomers, Nanotechnologists and firework manufacturers. Among recent works included in this exhibition are: All the Dead Stars (2009), a large map documenting the locations of 27,000 dead stars known to humanity; Light bulb to Simulate Moonlight (2009), an incandescent bulb designed to transmit wavelength properties identical to those of moonlight; and History of Darkness (ongoing), a slide archive of darkness captured at different times and places throughout the universe and spanning billions of years.
Katie Paterson received her BA from Edinburgh College of Art, Edinburgh, United Kingdom in 2004 and her MFA from the Slade School of Fine Art in London, United Kingdom in 2007, and has since participated in exhibitions at Modern Art Oxford, Oxford, UK; the Power Plant, Toronto, Canada; and Haunch of Venison, London, UK. Her work has also been featured in the Whitstable Biennial 2010, Whitstable, UK; PERFORMA 09, New York, NY; and Altermodern: Tate Triennial 2009, Tate Britain, London, UK. She currently holds a John Florent Stone Fellowship at Edinburgh College of Art, and is the Leverhulme Artist in Residence in the Astrophysics Group at the University College London for the academic year 2010-2011.
