Emma-Kate Guimond was born in Edmonton and is currently based in Montréal. She works in drawing, video, performance and text. Her work negotiates the real with spectacle while exploring psychosomatics, feminine narrative and body politics. In 2011 she completed her BFA in Contemporary Dance at Concordia University. She has exhibited performances at multiple Montréal galleries and venues including Articule, RATS 9 and the Red Bird. For the last year she has been working on the multi-media performance series i feel sick. Most recently she performed installment 7 in Toronto outside the AGO as part of NXNE Art and installment 8 in Edmonton as part of the Visualeyez Festival. She also works in collaboration with WIVES, an all woman performance-based collective, creating video and experimental theatre works using overhead projection. Their work Sea Foam Blue 2 was recently shown at Festival Phenomena in Montréal.
