Kathryn Ashill is practicing artist from Swansea who lives and makes work in Cardiff. The artist graduated from the BA Fine Art (Combined Media) at Swansea Metropolitan University in 2007. Her work concentrates on her physical interpretations of her surroundings that culminate in live actions that are documented through photography and film. Collaboration is a key element to the artists work as her performances focus around social interaction and interventions. Ashill has recently been awarded an Arts Council of Wales grant to undertake a residency at Craig Y Nos Castle where the artist intends on creating a series of new site specific performances. The outcomes of this project will be exhibited in her first solo exhibition at Pontardawe Arts Centre in October 2010.
