Katie Bret-Day is a London based artist that uses viscous materiality of photography to explore the contingent and discursive nature of being.
In 2018 she was presented as one of five rising talents by the Guardian, and previously by Aesthetica magazine. Her work has been included in the Tate commissioned Photography Ideas Book (2019) and acquired by the British Library as part of their Treasures Collection. She has been nominated for both the ReGeneration project and the Foam Paul Huf Award and received Creative Reviews Zeitgeist Award in 2018.
She graduated with distinction from the Royal College of Art in 2020 and also holds a First Class degree from the London College of Communication UAL.
In 2019 she produced work with the Sickle Cell Society in connection with Imperial College London, this work is representative of her evolving discourse that positions itself at a philosophical intersection of arts and sciences. She recently produced work as part of an LAPC curated exhibition that explored climate change though experimental photography. At present she lectures at Farnborough College of Technology.
