ABOUT THE WORK

Katherine Hattam’s work encompasses themes of feminism, domesticity, time, autobiography and psychology. Her new work created for VERSION, Exactly What We Want, combines a dual representation of the public and private spheres: the family kitchen table as the view to the wider world.

Hattam explores a formative period of her past through a combination of gouache, drawing and collage, autobiographical elements and domestic details, pieces of second wave feminist texts, child-rearing manuals, book pages and covers. Exactly What We Want depicts a location for the intersection of memory, space and autobiography, littered with the objects and influences that have shaped the artist. The blue palette of the work is drawn from the Penguin non-fiction books that feature throughout her work.

Exactly What We Want is printed on Canson Etching Edition Rag, an acid-free archival paper stock with a matte finish. The work is hand signed and editioned by the artist.
