Material Practice

The materials I work with are clay, texts, and books. The objects I make are extensions of my writing and performance practice, and I push materials to shows traces of duration, repetition and use.

I have been working in my studio to  combine ceramics and writing, re-imagining the role and place of an editorial practice in the visual arts.


Rebecca is a Canadian artist with a writing, research and performance practice.  Her research investigates how technologies and design can shape bodies, and what that contributes to an experience of being a person.  Her performances are driven by what she reads and makes use of materials that include the human voice, text, and clay.

Her work is exhibited and published internationally. Venues include the Serpentine Gallery MOMA PS1, and the Darling Foundry. Her writing has been published in journals and periodicals including the Organism for Poetic Research, Poetry is Dead, and Through Europe. She is an emeritus commissioning editor for E.R.O.S. Journal.

She holds a Masters in Art Writing from Goldsmiths, University of London, and has been the recipient of funding from The British Arts Council, The Québec Council for the Arts, and the Federal Government of Canada.
