CRATE Graduate Project Space Award Artists: Verity Hime
In her work, Verity pursues the idea of the self-portrait, without using an image of herself. Her most recent works have turned to cataloguing, a recurring tool that began due to her obsession with the organisation and cleaning of her surroundings and possessions.
Previous works have focused on capturing physical time and organisation via colour, size or topic.
Her latest work focused on her time spent at University. Cataloguing the contents of the rented room she lived in whilst studying; including a collection of new items including a bonsai tree, a collection of old items including a copy of To Kill A Mockingbird and a collection of presents including 18 empty Nutella jars. In doing this was the hope to create a time capsule of her university life.
