Kitchen Dutch is presented in partnership with the 2008 Images Festival, in the context of Ceremonial Actions at York Quay Gallery at Harbourfront Centre.
Louise Liliefeldt was born in Cape Town, South Africa in a community described as “coloured”. Traveling back a number of times over the years has resulted in an ongoing process of personal discovery through family and ancestry. Using these sometimes-contradictory images, in the performance Kitchen Dutch, Liliefeldt draws (literally, and on a large scale) a picture of self identity. Louise Liliefeldt is a Toronto-based performance artist and painter.

Ceremonial Actions is an all women’s show that explores ideas of ritual and performance. This exhibition blurs interiors and exteriors both literally and fi guratively, and spans concepts of mythology, emotion, ritual and psychology. All of the artists in this show have practices based in performance and the artworks investigate these ideas through acts of counting, weaving, rolling, repetition and drawing.
