Katy Hundertmark's approach towards photography has a strong connection to theatre production and employs performance as a way of inhabiting the photographic space. In her early work the staged self-portrait represented the main method to capture characters and scenes she performed for the camera. However over the past few years she has developed a specific interest in the intersection between photography, sculpture and the costume.
Hundertmark's work creates space for reflection around questions of identity, place and the perception of time and place. Although the photographic image remains at the centre of her practice she is more and more drawn to cross disciplinary processes of making and thinking, eager to explore new ways of translating images into space.
