Cath Campbell

Cath Campbell's practice is dominated by an ongoing enquiry into the status, meaning and fabric of architecture. Taking Modernism as a point of departure Campbell re-appropriates architectural imagery from memory or imagination to create works that reinvent our associations with the built environment.

Drawing, sculpture, photographic works, film and large-scale installations combine to create a world of make-believe spaces inspired by encounters with plans for actual places that are closed off or inaccessible to her.

Campbell often works closely with architects, engineers and fabricators to create large-scale interventions that make use of the materials and forms intrinsic to a building. In this sense, Campbell's work often bears subversive implications, which subtly jibe at the conventions of public art. Rather than adding a new object to a given environment, she distorts or reorders existing structures in a way that enables a shift of both meaning and space.
