Kate Blackmore’s work draws on documentary and anthropological conventions and often takes the form of multi-channel video installations. Through her projects, she is interested in developing forms of representation that take their relevance from the friction and engagement with social and political reality.
Since 2007 Blackmore has been a key member of artist collective BC (formerly Brown Council) with Kelly Doley, Frances Barrett & Diana Smith, whose artistic, curatorial, publishing and educational projects are influenced by queer and feminist methodologies.
In 2016 Blackmore will present three major new commissions: Making History for the 20th Biennale of Sydney (with BC); All Wedding Wishes for the Museum of Contemporary Art as part of the C3West Initiative, in partnership with Powerhouse Youth Theatre and STARRTS; and The Glass Bedroom, an ABC Arts documentary series for iview.
Blackmore is currently completing an MA in Visual and Media Anthropology at Freie Universität Berlin.
