Katie Taylor


I am a contemporary sculptural installation artist who explores the fragility of life and death and the precariousness of our existence. Forensic anthropology and its use to determine identity and individuality is a continuing theme within my work. I am a current PhD student at Oxford Brookes University and my research explores what identity is when forensic science is unable to identify an individual’s human remains.

I work in a variety of media to create sculptural installations that explore the interface between materiality and memory, exploring ideas of how we are remembered beyond death by means of our possessions, the conceptual and emotional content of objects. I have a textile background which informs an approach to my practice but my work does not always have a textile based outcome.
