Kaythi is a Toronto-based textile artist working at the intersection of craft tradition, dissemination and pedagogy. Inheriting a practice that is matrilineal in nature, Kaythi draws from and expands on the teachings of family, friends, and lovers. Her practice explores everyday repetitive tasks and their relationships to larger power structures; by slowly rug hooking and knitting, she uses craft as a social and pedagogical tool to create space in order to share stories, knowledge, and disagreement across difference. Her most recent work investigates the generative qualities of failure.
Kaythi holds a BFA in Printmaking from OCAD University (2017) but doesn’t print anymore. She is proud to carry on an iconic Albertan lesbian history and misses the prairie sky.
