Portable travelling shrine
“Inspired by portable shrines and amulet cases in the British Museum, this is a shrine to places Katie has never been; specifically the eight destination cities of ‘Fragile! In Transit’.
Drawing on themes of her previous work, Katie has explored the balance between her imagination and perception of a place versus the reality. Using gathered information from old postcards and guidebooks, she has visualised scenes from these eight cities.
As the shrine travels to the exhibitions each curator will add a small ‘souvenir’ of their city to one of the alcoves in the shrine, creating a narrative of its journey.”
