Kate Radford - Teaser EOY Interview
Kate Radford - Teaser EOY Interview with Leeds City College student Freyja Clare. Kate discusses why she chose to join Expression Of You, the challenges of women and their representation in popular culture.
I'm Kate Radford. I am an Artist. I am a Woman. I am of Welsh and Jewish heritage and was raised in rural, roaring Yorkshire.
I am based in Hebden Bridge. I work internationally. I work on local projects with local organisations as well as wider projects with international organisations. I work alone, I work collaboratively. I am predominantly a live artist or performance artist, but do accept my work exists within other dimensions. I like to explore that.
I use lots of different materials and explorations to journey through the landscape of the world we live in now. I do this because I do not believe we are one thing. I believe we are mentally and physically transitory, which means we can relate and converse with many different things. I converse with nature, I converse with technology. I converse with myself, I converse with others. I touch, taste, feel, smell, explore, expand. I don't ever really think anything is finished.
I identify as synaesthetic. A polymath. A multi-lingual, multi-disciplinary, transforming, conversing and ever-developing
