Meet the on-line Artist // Kate Corroon Skakel

Kate Corroon Skakel (@kate.corroon.skakel) is from the United States and creates large-scale, temporal installations made of paper, fabric, and light, that challenge our preconceived notions of fragility, power, and how we occupy space.

The disorienting use of light, combined with the softness of the fabric, creates an immersive experience that can transport people out of their world, into a space where she can allow herself to feel tender. Her pieces are rebellions against the politics of hard power, contradicting the notion that space should be taken up with brute force, and instead positing that we need to make room for fragility.
