Katie Orton's sculptural works garner inspiration from popular culture and a bar society where smoking is soon to be banned and people may see clearly now the smoke has gone. From the magical and mysterious utterings of Ivor Cutler in a bar full of Talking Heads, the noise is abated on request to a bearable degree.

Katie Orton is an artist interested in the concept of the microcosm. What can a seemingly insignificant product or action tell us about societal forces and methods of control?
What is it that makes us who we are? That is the question at the heart of Orton's work. She seems to have a fascination with the props of identity; a ring on a finger, what drink is ordered at the bar, ornaments on a mantelpiece, what brand of cigarette is chosen like a badge to be worn.
