Katy Woods’ work uses obsolescence, the outmoded and the defunct as devices to produce video projects. She works with found and filmed video material, text, sound and still image to reactivate material with new meaning, feeling, drama and narrative. Her work has been shown nationally and internationally including exhibitions and screenings at Nottingham Contemporary, S1 Artspace, Eastside Projects, LUX, Grand Union, Oriel Davies Gallery, Northern Gallery for Contemporary Art, Impressions Gallery, Art Sheffield, Tou Scene & i/o/lab, Stavanger and Bergen Kunsthall, Bergen. She has selected works for screenings at S1 Artspace, Eastside Projects and Flatpack Festival 2012. She lives and works in Birmingham.
Anthony is part of Woods’ ongoing series of films that focus on young people with a talent or innate natural ability that is recognised and grown into a professional career. The film looks at the experiences of a successful Astrophysicist, a gifted but unusual child who had a difficult adolescence.
