KATI SAQUI   Socially integrated Art Practice

I currenlty like to focus on creating and facilitating playful interactive communicative experiences. Where my artwork acts as a potential trigger for emplacement in society and shape new relationships.  I use artwork, objects and philosophy to prompt conversation and ways to contemplate, acknowledge and gently rupture the status quo. Appreciation and value of the perfectly imperfect,, being in and out of place are constants in my art practice.
