Cath Campbell makes sculpture, drawing, large scape architectural interventions, film, performance and participative projects.

 

Her most recent work centres around an ongoing collection of short films in which she uses found video footage to create fictional road trips across the American landscape. Using the films as a starting point, Cambell has expanded the content to explore the narrative as poetry, performance and sound, inviting collective female voices into the making of the work.

 

Increasingly interested in exploring feminist practice, Cath Campbell makes work from within the confines of domestic space, developing opportunity for participative processes and creating a platform for womens’ voices within public space.
