About my artwork
I am Lady Kitt. I am a live artist. In socially engaged practice I explore creative ownership, private and public rituals associated with creativity, and the mythology of the artist; looking at the role of the audience in the realisation of work.

I use traditional theatre/fine art traditions and information technology to open lines of communication between viewer, work and artist thus inviting the relationships between these elements to transform. I am particularly interested in subverting traditional British folk art and performance traditions and combining them with new technology to explore Britishness and the significance of culture in national identity.

In my work I offer members of the public the opportunity to become involved in both activities and ideas. I regularly use everyday, non-threatening materials; things that most people have access to, often using items that are a little absurd. In a recent performance I asked viewers to make pictures with instant gravy.

In my work the internet functions as an egalitarian platform, allowing individuals the freedom to perform (sometimes otherwise hidden) aspects of their identity. Traditionally in performance art, the artist has become the object. Performing via the internet allows the artist, art and viewer to all become non-objects. Reduced to binary digits, with no fixed meaning or being; these elements can successfully metamorphose, establishing a new context for making sharing, appreciating and being art.

I work with a variety of alter egos* to explore the function of performance within art and life. By adopting an alter ego and then making work as that character, I explore the potential of performance as a tool for making art as well as a method for presenting it. The histories and motivations of the characters might be interesting to people who view the work, but the viewer doesn’t need to know anything them to engage with the pieces.

I am interested in making art that is accessible, seductive, ethical, intelligent, skilled, and entertaining.

I am not interested in making art that is popularized, sexualized, Politicized, or thoughtlessly consumable.

I am utterly dedicated to making art available to as many people as possible to view, participate in and buy.

I passionately believe that increased public involvement in stimulating, progressive, high quality art has the potential to enrich the cultural landscape and the quality of individual lives.
Artists I like
Ron Mueck, James Johnson-Perkins, Pieter Bruegel, Sam Taylor-Wood, Maria Abramovic, Lucian Freud, Anton Hecht, Gauguin, Cornelia Parker, Rembrant, Gilbert and George, Claire Webster, Felix Gonzalez-Torres, Phil Collins, Marcus Coates, Banksy, Rirkrit Tiravanija, Peter Friedl, Vermeer, Patrick Tuttufuoco, Beryl Cook, Surasi Kusolwong, Forced Entertainment.
