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.

Over the course of hours, days or longer the performer and the audience can experience a physical, mental, spiritual and/or emotional transformation. Durational performance functions to bring the performer and the audience into the moment; time is made palatable and visceral.
Initiated in 2003 by Tanya Mars, FADO’s Emerging Artists Series was created to provide an on-going professional venue for emerging artists from Toronto and beyond to develop and present a performance piece, working within a curatorial framework set out by an emerging curator.
