Katy Howe is a multi media visual artist working in the realms of video installation and performance. She has a background in dance and theatre having worked extensively as a professional dancer . In  her practice she investigates the boundaries between performance in art and the cross overs with dance and theatre. Her work takes many forms but central and constant is a focus on the body, where she examines ideas surrounding identity and it's construction, the heteronormative male gaze and the possibility (or not) of becoming something else, something outside of these confines.
