Catherine Sullivan

Catherine Sullivan’s works engage a variety of media – theatre, film, video, photography, writing and sculpture. She has produced several performances and theatre works wherein the performers are often coping with written texts, stylistic economies, reenactments of historic performances, gestural and choreographic regimes, and conceptual orthodoxies. The works address a broad spectrum of historical reference and often involve multiple collaborators such as composer Sean Griffin. Her work is often staged and shot on sets for unrelated productions and in settings that project social function beyond the mise en scène Sullivan builds within them. What hopefully emerges from the numerous layers of collaboration and reference is an anxious and unresolved political and social sensibility. Work has been exhibited nationally and internationally at a wide variety of venues such as the UCLA Armand Hammer Museum, Los Angeles; The Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; Opéra de Lyon, Lyon; and Volksbühne, Berlin.
