Kat Vogart

Senior Lecturer

Department of Art and Music

Kat Vogart


Kat is an artist and a make-up artist focusing on a critical and creative practice.

Kat explores the subject of death and gender through the art of taxidermy and birds’ preservation. Unimaginable, mentally unrepresentable, death is the unknown and constitutes the inevitable encounter with the incomprehensible. Various depictions and interpretations of death maintain the relationship between the world of the living and the dead. Such portrayals of the unknown move the viewers towards deeper self-understanding and shaping identities, especially in the context as abstract as own death.

Further information

Kat has worked as a make-up artist in the industry since 2006, collaborating with artists and photographers on numerous projects. She has worked with Jimmy Choo, Sorapol, Katarzyna Konieczka and London Fashion Week. Kat has also been involved in organizing art exhibitions and curating as an artist in Espacio Gallery, London.
