Katrina Burch is an artist, musician, anthropologist, photographer and a mother. As Yoneda Lemma (her artistic alias since 2013) she attunes with the poetics and erotics of listening and abstraction in music, art, anthropology and motherhood. Her work draws phantasmagoric, kaleidoscopic and cosmological impressions from the details, cadences and noise of everyday life, emphasizing the intimate, emotional, conceptual and somatic. Her mediums are photographic film, audiovisual field recording, found and archived footage, and improvised and synthetic instrumentals. Currently she is preparing doctoral research at McGill University for collaborative sensory ethnographic films on rotational agroforestry systems, reproductive care, dreaming and Indigenous sovereignty.
Her sound works have appeared at new forms festival (vancouver); muzeum sztuki (łódz); tate britain, café oto and the ica (london); at the hkw and maerzmusik (berlin); bienal sesc de dança (saõ paulo), among other locations. Katrina is also an archaeologist and an avid urban gardener.
