Katrina's studio practice examines the nature of ritualistic performance in relation to its documentation.  She is fascinated in the aura of performance, of ephemeral action, of the present moment: and with this, the transition of performance to record.

Her work draws on personal curiosities of occult philosophy, folklore, meditation and the Deleuzian discourse of Becoming[1].  Exploring complexities of language and how we connect with each other, on a subtle and intuitive level, often through the medium of performance, spoken word & lens-based media.
