CSSW are delighted to announce that we have commissioned artist Katy Richardson to create a video-essay in response to SHE/HER. Katy's video-essay will be shown before each screening of SHE/HER, and Katy will be at the Phoenix before the SHE/HER programme screening on Sun 15th August at 3.15pm to present her work in person.

Katy Richardson is an artist based in Plymouth, UK. Her moving image, installation and sound works draw on research into trauma, haunting, memory and mental health, in an attempt to shine a light on hidden, unknown and undervalued voices. Her work has been shown and performed internationally, and she holds an MA in Contemporary Art Practice from University of Plymouth.
