Interview :: Catherine or Kate

February 1st 2012

Catherine or Kate (Catherine Sagin and Kate Woodcroft) may not have just married into the British Royal family, but they probably wouldn’t have been allowed to go streaking through Icelandic fields if they had. Working together since 2008, these women see value in a bit of healthy competition. In 2011 they held a fencing dual over the naming rights to their collaboration, won by Sagin. (Thus, the group formally known as Catherine Sagin). Their latest show at Firstdraft Gallery comprises two works developed during an artist residency in Iceland. Some people might go and paint lights, but they traipsed the country’s servos asking the attendants who was hotter.


That's '"Acconci's Theme Song", FYI. Catherine or Kate’s opening is tonight (1st Feb) at Firstdraft Gallery, 6-8 and the show runs until the 18th of February. They are exhibiting alongside Adrian Gebers, Jodie Whalen and Erica Molesworth.
