Kate McMillan CV

Kate McMillan’s work incorporates a range of media including sculpture, film, sound, installation and photography. McMillan is interested in the linking narratives of forgetting and place, often focusing on the residue of the past. Her artworks thus act as haunting memory-triggers for histories and ideas that are over-looked. Her most recent work at Castor Projects in London in April 2016 was titled Songs for Dancing, Songs for Dying and mapped the relationship between inherited body memory and landscape, incorporating film, sculpture and photographs.

She is currently working towards a major project with ‘Momentum: Global Platform for Time Based Art’ for early 2017. The work entitled The Ghosts of Material Things engages with ideas of involuntary memory and uses the Gordon Medical Pathology Museum in London, King’s College, the Musee Marcel Proust in Illiers-Combray, the Musee Carnavalet in Paris and Berlin’s Charite Medical History Museum to navigate the fictional lives of a family who come back from the past and attempt to repatriate objects and body parts from these museums. The work engages with ideas of migration, lost memory and historical trauma.

In July 2016 she has been invited to undertake a residency in St Petersburg as part of the National Centre for Contemporary Art (NCCA) where she will develop new works.

Everyone remembers his penguins that ran from the Arctic and Antarctic Museum around St. Petersburg , Antarctic Mission, the Pro Arte Institute festival and the series of monumental panels on special material (ruberoid).

Andrey Rudyev says that his first creative practices were directed at realistically portraying objects. He was fanatically devoted to realistic painting. However, as soon as he mastered his artistic skills, his views changed. In his individual preferences, he moved on from the Russian academic artists to the German classic artists of the twentieth century such as Joseph Beuys and Anselm Kiefer, and the contemporaries, Jonathan Meese and Daniel Richter.
