She has an ongoing interest in shared cultural memory (as produced by popular music, television and cinema) and the melding of this information to biographical memory.

Kathryn Elkin films include documentary interviews, proto pop videos and talk shows reworked into new and less stable forms to find out what constitutes the ‘televisual’.

Kathryn Elkin (born in Belfast, 1983) is a graduate of Glasgow School of Art (2005) and Goldsmiths College (2012) and former LUX Associate Artist (2013)
