On Hiatus marks the first of our Pear shaped: one-night editions by collaborating artists.
Catherine or Kate, the artist(s) formerly known as Catherine Sagin (née Fiona Mail) have been working together for four years. Having undergone more name-changes than a high school garage band trying to hook their first paid gig, the duo have shown a blatant disregard for branding consistency and instead have opted to keep internet search engines on their toes. These restless naming revisions are part of the duo’s broader strategy for deliberately disrupting the distinctions between individual and shared performative identities. By constantly reframing and refocusing the dynamics of their partnership, Catherine or Kate also engage in an ongoing reassessment of the popular paradigms of creative collaboration, and the basic tenets upon which these collaborations are founded.
