Katie Ryan’s practice predominantly takes the form of installation, Sculpture and video. Her work evolves from concerns pertaining to interactions and relations between objects and bodies. Ryan is fascinated by how our understanding of objects – whilst partly shaped by their physical appearance – is also constituted by their relation to our emotional and psychological associations. All of these factors converge to form categories, through which we construct an understanding of the world around us. Ryan’s interest lies in the potential for works to traverse or dissolve these categorical boundaries, calling into question the validity of their parameters.
