    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

GESTURE

2015 / HD Video / Interactive installation with 9 iPads

A touch, a swipe, a double tap. Hand choreography results between three generations of women’s hands, performing and expanding on our everyday screen signals. The wrestling and shivering of a mother/daughter gesture refers to off-screen conflict in the same way a show-tune drummed out invokes tap-dance play.

+++

Gesture is part of MIMMiC: a 9 touch-screen interactive software platform. It exists in both single channel form and in multiple screen interactive form, using finger gestures (much like the hand choreography referenced in the media) to scroll through, synchronize, randomize and juxtapose the media.
