A Good Time

Katasi constructs nostalgic tableaus of intimate social moments using digital collage, placing beautiful people having A Good Time in the foreground of architecturally magnificent spaces. Her whimsical works exhibit playfulness and joy on the surface, with an underlying theme of reclaiming space. This theme is represented through her reimagination of archival imagery, taking people out of their original image context and inserting them into contexts that historically excluded them, challenging perceptions of belonging and identity.

As a first-generation Ugandan-Filipina American, this series celebrates Katasi's love for her Black identity and the unifying power of Black culture across its diversity. It also taps into her love for 70’s/80’s nostalgia, funk, disco, film and tv. Through her composition, she crafts a new layer of familiarity that can be felt between each person and the space they are in, making each collage feel like an actual photograph. In her final piece, “Mahal Kita”, she delves into her Filipino heritage, honoring Filipina women – the unsung heroes of global labor and care for generations – a tribute to her mother.
