Allison Katz - Artery

Allison Katz’s (b. 1980, Montreal, Canada) exhibition at Camden Art Centre will be the London-based artist’s first institutional solo show in London.

For more than a decade, Katz has been exploring painting’s relationship to questions of identity and expression, selfhood and voice. Animated by a restless sense of humour and curiosity, her works articulate a tricksy language of recurring forms – roosters, monkeys and cabbages, among other things – that are by turns familiar and enigmatic, and through which the artist’s sustained and critical pursuit of “genuine ambiguity” takes shape.

The work for Artery was developed over the last two years, in parallel with the disruption of the Covid-19 pandemic. The new paintings, posters and exhibition design are infused with questions of communication and connection, distancing and intimacy.
