“Part 21st century troubadour and part artistic chameleon, Cat Catalyst has created a hypnotic poetic vision that is quite literally a spiritual call to arms.”
CAT CATALYST is a London born artist, designer, writer, curator and advocate for the Earth with a particular interest in the redemptive potential of art, installation and the spoken-word to activate, elevate and accelerate human-consciousness. Cat’s former Artists bookworks are part of the special collections of Artist’s books housed at The British Library, The Wellcome Trust Library, The Women’s Art Library and the Tetley Arts Center.
In February my Artist’s Book: ‘Sequence’ was acquired at the 22nd Annual International Contemporary Artists Book Fair held at the Tetley in Leeds and is part of the PAGES New Voices collection of Artists’ Books, which has started a short tour of three Yorkshire venues at the Rotherham Open Arts Renaissance (Below).
PAGES is coordinated by artists and researchers John McDowall and Chris Taylor. Founded in 1998 and operating around the hub of an annual Artists’ Book Fair, the initiative has provided numerous and wide-ranging opportunities for the development and awareness of the book as primary medium in art practice. Manifestations such as exhibitions, workshops, open calls and curated projects have facilitated experimentation, dissemination and engagement for audience and makers. In 2019 in association with the Fair’s host venue, TheTetley, and with the support of Arts Council England, PAGES has under taken a series of major new projects.
