I am an artist and performance maker.
My work investigates the interrelationships between people and places. I often place the audience member at the centre of the experience, shifting them from passive spectator to active participant.
I make collaborative projects with Simon Persighetti as Etheridge & Persighetti. Operating at the intersection between architecture, community, landscape, and performance, our collaborative practice invites audiences to investigate their own relationships with the places in which they live, work and play.
I am the director of Faceback, the live art game that has gone viral at Festivals and events across the UK, connecting 1000’s of people who wouldn’t normally meet.
“Katie Etheridge is a fascinating artist and performer. She has a rare ability to engage intimately with the contexts of her work and then produce responses of subtlety and complexity.”
