Katie Paterson is a contemporary artist with an extraordinary and unique practice. She
has worked with NASA to recreate the smell of Saturn’s moon, and the European Space
Agency to send a meteorite back into space. In one of her earliest works Katie explored
themes of climate change with her piece entitled Vatnajökull (the sound of). From
Anywhere in the world you could call a mobile phone number to be connected to a rapidly
eroding glacier in Iceland and listen to it melting.
This free talk is aimed at Kent School Students from Key Stage 3, 4 and 5 and looks at
incredible and exciting links between art, science and history. It coincides with the
opening of the largest UK exhibition of Katie’s work which will be paired with a group of
works by JMW Turner and opens at Turner Contemporary on the 26th of January.
