Karen Rann

Most of my artwork is made in response to a specific site or location, the outcome may be installation/s, sculpture or performance; the choice of materials, construction methods and form relating to the history, location and function of the place.

As a socially engaged artist, taking a pro-active approach to engaging and working with others is a vital element of a project; this process supports and feeds exploration, research and response.

Whereas much of my work is a result of residencies or commissions, this project stems from a personal passion to know more about the invention of a line; the inventors (there were a few), the places that were first surveyed for their invention, and the original maps and publications through which the story of the invention is revealed.
