History, people and a sense of place inspire Kathryn Ashill’s performance work. The live actions concentrate on physical and personal responses to her surroundings. Her performances are simple, often focusing on participation and interaction between herself and strangers.

‘I am concerned with the body as a social tool, a way of instigating dialogue about personal responses to life experiences and perspectives on my surroundings.’
Her work often concentrates on her physical interpretations of her surroundings that culminate in live actions which are documented through photography and film. Collaboration is a key element to the artists work as her performances focus around social interaction and interventions.

Her many recent installations and performance projects include Craig Y Nos, Oriel Lliw, Pontardawe Arts Centre, Swansea andA Series of Uncertainties, Chapter Arts Centre, Cardiff.

The artist was in the following exhibition:
