Cathy Wilkes was born in 1966 in Belfast, and studied at the Glasgow School of Art and at the University of Ulster in Belfast. In 1989 she was a co-founder of the Women’s Library in Glasgow; she organised exhibitions and worked in the artist’s collective “Elisabeth Go”.
In extensive installations, full of subliminal allusions, Cathy Wilkes arranges found objects with small-format paintings and delicate geometric constructions made of wood. A worn-out garden lounger, a folding table, an ancient heater are the supporting protagonists of these sets. A patina of dust, scratches and rust coats the furniture and implies the story of its use.
