Biography


Born Syd­ney, Aus­tralia 1982

Lives and works in Syd­ney, Australia


Kate Mitchell com­plet­ed a Bach­e­lor of Fine Arts (Hon­ours) in 2006 and a Mas­ters of Fine Arts in 2008, both at the Col­lege of Fine Arts, Uni­ver­si­ty of New South Wales in Sydney.

Con­sis­tent­ly imbued with humour, Mitchell’s prac­tice draws atten­tion to the per­se­ver­ance required to main­tain an artis­tic prac­tice, as well as the rep­e­ti­tious monot­o­ny of life, which she trans­forms through sharp and wit­ty interventions.

Work­ing in per­for­mance, video and pho­tog­ra­phy, the artist doc­u­ments and ques­tions every­day life and social behav­iour, often engag­ing com­mu­ni­ty par­tic­i­pants. As the main pro­tag­o­nist of her work, Mitchell phys­i­cal­ly enacts var­i­ous prompts relat­ed to art his­to­ry, crit­i­cal dis­course and her own prac­tice, as if play­ing a game of cha­rades in a slum­ber­ous state.

Her work is includ­ed in lead­ing pub­lic and pri­vate col­lec­tions across Aus­tralia includ­ing: Kadist Foun­da­tion, Paris and San Fran­cis­co; Michael Bux­ton Col­lec­tion, Mel­bourne; and Monash Uni­ver­si­ty Muse­um of Art, Melbourne.
