Material Practice

The materials I work with are clay, fabric and texts.  I create objects that have the capacity to ‘perform themselves’, or I use them in performances and workshops.

Most recently I have been combining ceramics and writing activities.

About

Rebecca is a Montreal-based 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, clay and fabric.

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.
