Upon completing her PhD at the Slade School of Fine Art, she founded the pioneering RUN! RUN! RUN! International Festival of Running in 2014, which has since 2016 been re-named the RUN! RUN! RUN! Biennale. The success of the first run has led to the set up of the RUN! RUN! RUN! International Body for Research, a research framework which explores running as a critical and creative toolkit to engage with the self, others, the city, technology and non-logocentric modes of thinking. Recognition for Kai’s work includes the SFIFF Golden Gate Award and Japan Foundation artist-in-residency award. Her works are collected by the Museum of London, Wellcome Trust and Fukuoka Art Museum.
