Foster, Kate

Kate Foster is an independent environmental artist. Brought up in Essex, she was further educated in Scotland, switching from social science research to graduate from Glasgow School of Art in 2001. Her current residency with a peatland restoration programme in Galloway Glens developed out of a Borderlands Network focussing on cultural values of wetland, 2016.

Earlier work includes collaborative ‘biogeographies’ exploring the cultural histories of particular zoological specimens (Leverhulme Fellowship, University of Glasgow, 2005) where she found herself travelling with a study-skin of a hen harrier to revisit where it had been killed in the 1920s, and documenting the rare remains of the extinct South African bluebuck in European museums. Border Sheepscapes (2010) and Working the Tweed (2013) concerned workaday aspects of ‘pastoral’ scenery. Her varied output includes drawing, installations, small sculptures, events and publications.
