“This work focuses on the body, a broken and marginalized body that questions its presence in relation to others.” CS
The following text is taken from Front Magazine, vol. VIII, no. 2, p. 11, November/December 1996:
“I remember having this idea a long time ago when I was a teenager:
What if there was a person whose only purpose in life was to temporarily disturb things that were in the midst of happening?”
- Cathy Sisler, from “Story #3″
La Femme Écran
The Reflexive Woman
a touring exhibition curated by Nicole Gingras
Cathy Sisler’s work is characterized by motion, sound and narrative.
She is a truly multidisciplinary artist, her works utilize video, audio, performance, painting and writing.
This exhibition will feature a number of her video works as well as an audio installation and sculptural pieces.
“This work focuses on the presence of the body, a broken marginalized body that questions its presence in relation to others.
We perceive here an investigation of identity, an autobiographical quest, a social critique and a great sense of irony toward imagined and imposed roles.” – Nicole Gingras
This exhibition is accompanied by a catalogue.
Cathy Sisler and Nicole Gingras would like to thank the Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec, Canada Coucil, Oboro, and the Centre d’art contemporain de Basse-Normandie for supporting this project.
