Nina Katchadourian

Nina Katchadourian works in a diverse range of media, including photography, sculpture, sound and video. Katchadourian often locates her subject matter in the colloquial; in recent years she has also looked to "nature" as concept, construct and site. Past projects have included mending broken spiderwebs; restoring loose, discarded audio and video tape found on the streets of different cities; creating car alarm systems based on bird sounds; and inventing a talking popcorn machine that uses a Morse Code program to translate the sounds of popping popcorn and turn it into spoken language.

Her work has been exhibited in the United States and abroad, including PS1/Moma, Artists Space, and Sculpture Center in New York, The Berkeley Art Museum, the ICA Philadelphia, The Museum of Textiles in Toronto, The Royal Hibernian Academy in Dublin, Arnolfini in Bristol, England, and the Serpentine Gallery in London. She is represented by Debs and Co. gallery in New York and Catharine Clark Gallery in San Francisco and has received awards in recent years from the Louis Comfort Tiffany Foundation, the Peter S. Reed Foundation, and the Anonymous Was a Woman Foundation. Her most recent solo exhibition, "Animal Crossdressing, Uninvited Collaborations with Nature, and One Small Act of Endurance," was on view at Catharine Clark Gallery in January 2004. Katchadourian is originally from California, lives and works in Brooklyn, and spends part of each summer in the Finnish archipelago.
