Moved by Words II by Catherine Repko
Catherine Repko b.1990 based in London. The third of four sisters, Catherine's current practice explores this relationship. She is interested in the space between them, their relationship growing up together and what connects them now as adults; how the support and significance of this relationship resonates betwen them and with wider relationships. Her work takes an intimate look at sisterhood but also arises contemplations surrounding identity, of being daughters, about motherhood, our humanity – at a time that feels so increasingly polarised both socially and politically, Catherine's work is looking at what unites and ties us togther.

Catherine previously studied BA Visual Communication at University of Brighton and did a semester abroad ay Minneapolis College of Art and Design. Cathrine attended the Foundation in Art and design at Chelsea College of Art (2009-2010).
