ABOUT

Monika Kita is a London based artist who works in medium of photography, video and film. Apart from her art practice she also works commercially taking commissions from various organisations as well as private clients. She has presented her work in many individual as well as collective exhibitions since 1998. She has made contributions to several publications including London Independent Photography Magazine and Panoptikum. She also published a catalogue of her work in 2003. She often works in collaboration with other artists including puppeteers and theatre directors. Her recent art practice is concerned with the subject of ‘loss’ with a strong emphasis on space, time and history. She is interested in ‘stillness’ and the concept of ‘otherness’ with relation to the moving image.
