Born in 1984 in the U.K., Katia Barrett grew up in Bahrain and currently lives and works in London. Barrett is currently studying for an MFA at the Dutch Art Institute. Her recent research and practice draws upon developments in interdisciplinary theoretical biology in which the subjectivisation of nature corresponds with a naturalisation of subjectivity. From this she explores questions of agency, reason, consciousness and will. Recent exhibitions include Homeworks 7, Beirut, 2015.
