Kate Henderson is a Vancouver-based artist who received her MFA in Visual Art from the University of British Columbia in 2013 and her BFA with a major in Photography from the Emily Carr University of Art + Design in 2007. Henderson’s practice navigates the transitional space between the analog and the digital and the body and the machine in technologies of seeing, surveillance, and self-surveillance. She gleans low-res Internet images and videos of the material remains of analog media and repositions them through digital projection, slide projection, and installation—a process that locates and materializes the digital substrate, thereby giving physical form to a seemingly intangible medium. Henderson is interested in appropriated images of analog ruin and the industrial sublime and how the economy and poetics of photography has transformed with the onset of virtual, circulating images.
Henderson is sessional faculty at Emily Carr University and an art educator for children and youth at Arts Umbrella. She has exhibited in Vancouver at the Morris and Helen Belkin Art Gallery, Satellite Gallery, VIVO, Access Gallery, Burrard Arts Foundation, Gallery 295, and the AHVA Gallery at the Audain Art Centre at the University of British Columbia.
