Scratching the Surface
Scratching the Surface (detail)
Interestingly Catherine uses unusual materials to create her installations, making something beautiful by preserving things others have discarded. "My work is about labour, investing time in a very ordinary material. I use daily domestic activities or chores such as vacuuming and dusting to make my work. I use dust as a mechanism for storytelling - dust is often described as being the matter of history, a residue or fragment that enables you to reflect on the past." Sourced
