About Catherine Yass
Catherine Yass is one of the most innovative artists working with film and photography today. She was nominated for the Turner Prize in 2002 and has recently exhibited her work in the USA, Spain, the Netherlands and Japan.
Her short films generate startling new perspectives on the urban environment, capturing familiar sights from highly unusual vantage points. Presented upside down, Descent (2002) was filmed from a massive construction site at London’s Canary Wharf, the camera lowered from a crane through the morning mist. Flight (2002) was made from a remote-controlled helicopter circling the BBC Television Centre in London. In her recent film Lock (2006), Yass filmed the Three Gorges Dam on China's Yangtze River.
