KATRINA PALMER, A READING

A live reading of selected recent work by Katrina Palmer accompanied by Adam Wilson on keyboard. Palmer uses words and narrative to build sculptural objects in publications, audio installations and live readings. The work often features an artist-protagonist negotiating aspects of materiality in visceral encounters with real and imagined objects.
