    Bio

    Evann Siebens makes media, performance and photos with movement. Her lens-based practice negotiates the human body as an archival site and the politics of the female gaze. She danced with the National Ballet of Canada and the Bonn Ballett before studying film production at New York University. Recent exhibitions and screenings include: Witte de With (Rotterdam, 2020), WAAP (Vancouver, 2019), Belkin Gallery (Vancouver 2018), Vancouver Art Gallery Façade Fest (Vancouver 2017). Evann recently screened a film at Lincoln Center in New York City and won the ‘Outstanding Overall Work’ prize at the Light Moves Festival in Limerick, Ireland. Her work from ‘A Performance Affair’ in Brussels, Belgium was featured on the front page of the International New York Times in 2019. She is represented by Wil Aballe Art Projects in Vancouver, Canada. Curriculum Vitae

FLOOD

2015 / media sculpture / photographs

The ephemera and archive of a flooded home. Soaked pianos and saturated records result in the ruined soundtrack of a life in Musicals, Sesame Street, Men without Hats, ‘The Funeral of Winston Churchill’, Bob and Doug McKenzie and Georges Bizet. Taking the warped records from her flooded Calgary childhood home, Siebens DJ’s her way through the remnants of a 1970’s Canadian childhood. The sound distorts and repeats, resulting in a sound and media collage embedded into a sculptural vintage record player. ‘side 1, track 1: FLOOD’ examines the personal effects of floods, droughts, rising rivers, and what this means for our mothers, our families, our selves.
