Kate Mitchell’s practice spans video, public interventions and sculpture. The artist places herself in absurd scenarios which talk to issues surrounding work, effort, opportunity, success, failure and time. Mitchell’s video artworks are staged documentations of the outcomes of these situations and her conceptual sculptural works masquerade ultimately as questions for the viewer to ponder the structural beliefs to which they hold. She often uses humour as a means of bringing the viewer into the present moment with the intention of reminding them that they exist only for a short time.
