Sherri Hay


Sherri Hay a Canadian artist who splits her time between NYC, USA and Toronto, Canada. With a wide-ranging practice that includes video and performance, her sculpture and installations have been exhibited internationally, at the Art Gallery of Toronto and the Museum of Canadian Contemporary Art in Toronto. She is also an occasional collaborator in experimental theatre and dance. Since 2012, her practice has focused on movement and time, relationships and change, exploring the quality and the extent to which she can give over voice as an artist – how she can be the instigator of a process instead of the Creator-from-nothing, proposing a certain kind of sentience for objects as performers.

Artist Orange

Just as a performance artist uses their body as their medium, this is a fragrance composed entirely of the orange tree: fruit, leaves, bark, roots, and flowers. Artist Orange performs itself.
