In this extended podcast episode multi-media British artist Kate Daudy talks about the artists who have inspired her from East to West and spanning thousands of years between them. Kate talks us through why words and language are such a huge part of her work, why she became an artist and how she uses objects to better understand the world around her. We discuss her use of felt as a medium and the time she spent in refugee camps working on a project about home and identity.
