    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

quad/wrangle

2012 / 5:15 mins / video & isadora real time software

A duet between the cinematographer and dancer, quad/wrangle is a grid of moving images. Referencing the classic quad of photo-booth images, the shot images are projected in the gallery space with real-time media manipulation software Isadora. Yet the intentions and focus of the camera-person and the fact that the recording device is moving and engaged, moves it beyond a static photo-booth. A detail of a hand moving, the feet, torso or face, creates a private space within a very public sphere. Part performance, part burlesque, the result is a physical conversation between camera, dancer and the media wrangled onto the screen.
