Catherine Bertola (born 1976) is a British artist. Her work has been included in an exhibition shown at the Victoria and Albert Museum, named Out of the Ordinary, between November 2007 and February 2008. She is particularly well known for her works consisting of dust and PVA glue and studied at Newcastle University.
Exploring the idea of existence, Bertola works with dust, glue, interior building fragments and other detritus of human existence within site specific installations to evoke history and evoke memory. Bertola follows in the tradition of British artists like Cornelia Parker and Rachel Whiteread “who excavate the landscape and narratives of the past and present, exploring histories through objects, place and recordings.” Bertola was one of 18 artists-in-residence in the Further Up in the Air project in the Sheil Park housing block, Liverpool, one of the artists invited to live and work in the flats of the housing project slated for demolition.
