Katie Paterson – Evergreen

28.May - 5.Oct

Katie Paterson, born in Glasgow 1981, is regarded as one the leading artists of her generation working at the nexus of art and science. Collaborating with leading scientists and researchers across the world, Paterson’s poetic and conceptual projects consider our place on Earth in the context of geological time and change. Her artworks make use of sophisticated technologies and specialist expertise in order to create intimate, poetic and philosophical engagements between people and the natural environment.

At Galleri F 15 Katie Paterson will unveil several new artworks and include a selection of earlier works, including the film Future Library, presenting the hundred-year artwork Future Library for the City of Oslo. A thousand trees have been planted in the forest of Nordmarka, which will supply paper for a special anthology of books to be printed in one-hundred years’ time.

Katie Paterson has exhibited internationally, from London to New York, Berlin to Seoul, and her works have been included in major exhibitions including at: the Hayward Gallery and Tate Britain, London; Kunsthalle Wien; MCA Sydney; Guggenheim Museum, New York; and The Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art, Edinburgh. She was winner of the Visual Arts category of the 2014 South Bank Awards and is an Honorary Fellow of Edinburgh University
