Caitlin Warther is an interdisciplinary light artist. She recently graduated from The Parsons School of Constructed Environments in New York City with an MFA in Lighting Design (2017) and holds an MA degree from the University of Edinburgh in Scotland (2014).
Warther’s practice encompasses sculpture and photography in an ongoing investigation into what it means to inhabit space.
While developing a symbiosis of formal abstraction and function, Warther explores core questions of “how do we represent ourselves?” and “how do we infuse a sense of the sacred in the spaces we inhabit?” through arts-based research into identity formation, social norms and values, and structures for living. Bodies of work, such as, Selfscape: Transformations, suggest that there is a profound disconnect between human needs and social systems and structures that were once considered innovative.
After recently moving to Cape Town she is busy with a new body of work that responds to the light and space of Cape Town.
Caitlin Warther is featured in Zeitz MOCAA exhibition, Still Here Tomorrow To High Five You Yesterday (2019).
