2001: Katherine Knight

Toronto based artist Katherine Knight was artist-in-residence at United Media Arts for December 2001, creating a new body of work about snow. During her residency she conducted a workshop on photography, gave a lecture and slide presentation at the Tom Thomson Memorial Art Gallery in Owen Sound, and an artist talk at Grey Highland Secondary School in Flesherton. Her most recent work, Aerostat, was exibited at the Durham Art Gallery from January 10 to February 10, 2002.

Aerostat, a portrait of air and wind, reflects Knight's continued interest in landscape and weather related events. This body of work explores both the metaphoric implications of wind while documenting its physical impact on the world.

Katherine Knight is nationally recognized for her photo-based work and installations which often incorporates black and white stills, text and archival material. Her work explores notions of memory, narrative, will and consequence while referencing landscape and geography.

In 2000 she was awarded the Canada Council's Duke and Duchess of York Prize in Photography in recognition of the excellence of her work. She is an assistant professor for photography at York University.
