Kate Mitchell completed a Bachelor of Fine Arts (Honours) in 2006 and a Masters of Fine Arts in 2008, both at the College of Fine Arts, University of New South Wales in Sydney.
Consistently imbued with humour, Mitchell’s practice draws attention to the perseverance required to maintain an artistic practice, as well as the repetitious monotony of life, which she transforms through sharp and witty interventions.
Working in performance, video and photography, the artist documents and questions everyday life and social behaviour, often engaging community participants. As the main protagonist of her work, Mitchell physically enacts various prompts related to art history, critical discourse and her own practice, as if playing a game of charades in a slumberous state.
Her work is included in leading public and private collections across Australia
