DescriptionKatie Shulman makes sculptures through a choreographed process. Her method is sustained by a dedication to material exploration as a means to develop a visual vocabulary. Her pidgin language, comprised of bed sheets, knitted bra strapping and found objects, is employed to create bodily forms, with a focus in capturing both the static and moving body’s response to gravity. Her material based studio practice references dance choreography and Field's commitment to the exploration of the body as material that illustrates the universal sensation of embodiment. Her aim is to leverage her material language to achieve an aesthetic output that can recall for viewers these personal yet universal bodily sensations and realities.
