Laura Gildner is an intermedia artist currently residing on Lekwungen territory.  Her practice is rooted in the performative and seeks to confront the precariousness inherent in power dynamics between image, desire, artist, and subject.  Often bringing unexpected groupings of people together to collaborate on works that reveal themselves as relationships between otherwise strangers are formed, Laura’s projects examine idiosyncratic spaces in which the unfamiliar and absurd become impetus for connection.
