Katie Davies

Katie Davies (b.1979) is a Royal West of England Academician and was nominated for the 2016 Paul Hamlyn Award. She has exhibited nationally and internationally including Oberhausen International Film Festival (2017), Sarajevo Film Festival (2015), Border Visions, Connecticut, US (2012) and the Istanbul Biennial (2009). She has contributed to several publications and her writing on practice-led research has been included in US and British publications. Her videos and installations explore the construction of identities, their reflections and manipulations. Issues of nationalism, violence and democracy form a central critique, focusing on individuals and communities whose identities are dictated by the state; their agency to self-identify snared between political agendas and sovereign violence. Davies is Academic Course Leader in Fine Art at The University of Gloucestershire.
