Katy Beinart

Artist working in socially engaged practice, sculpture, installation, performance and film.

My art practice combines elements of art and architecture, after having originally training as an architect. My work has been shown nationally and internationally in galleries and as part of public art commissions, residencies and festivals. 

My artworks include installation, sculpture, photography, film, performance and public art. I often work on self-initiated long-term projects alongside shorter commissions and shows. I respond to the context of places, sites and situations, examining themes of heritage and history, memory, culture and identity.

Through remaking of objects and rituals, I am interested in revealing pasts, and re-writing narratives of place and identity. Archives, both real and invented, often feature in my work. I  work with participatory (or socially engaged) methods to invite users of places to collaborate in the process of making artworks.

I collaborate regularly with my sister, artist Rebecca Beinart as part of our ongoing project Origination.

I am a board member of Ixia, the public art think-tank.

I have worked in arts education and community development since 1998, and I am currently a Senior Lecturer in Architecture at the University of Brighton as well as working as a freelance artist educator.
