The projects of Katie Paterson (b. 1981, Scotland) consider our place on Earth in the context of geological time and change. Her artworks make use of sophisticated technologies and specialist expertise to stage intimate, poetic, and philosophical engagements between people and their natural environment. Combining a Romantic sensibility with a research-based approach, conceptual rigour and minimalist presentation, her work collapses the distance between the viewer, the edges of time, and the cosmos. Her solo exhibitions were presented at NYLO The Living Art Museum, Reykjavík, Iceland (2021); The Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art (2020); and the Utah Museum of Modern Art, Salt Lake City, United States (2017). To Burn, Forest, Fire is a IHME Helsinki Commission 2021.
