Statement

  Katie Hovencamp is an interdisciplinary artist that creates work that spans sculpture, painting, drawing and performance. Interested in revealing when a construct fractures a unified experience of being present within one’s body; my work questions hierarchies built by a body politic. Finding correspondences within the structure of fairy tales, conversations of gender identity and standards of beauty, I use the body’s physicality as a material bridge to an empathetic experience. Through my installations, performances and sculptures I create specific tasks that force my body to respond in a shamanistic manner. By using durational, repetition and endurance based actions; my goal is to create an embodied experience that summons vulnerability for both the performer and the viewer. In this way, I become the host for the engendered body to compel an empathetic response.
