Victoria Stanton (CA)
Victoria Stanton (Montreal, Canada) is an interdisciplinary artist and researcher/curator/educator who works with live action, human interaction, video, film, photo, drawing, and writing. Her time-based work includes performance for stage, performance for the camera, actions in public spaces, and one-on-one encounters in intimate contexts. Investing a performative presence and consciousness within multiple spaces/times, she continuously underscores the complex aspects of “transaction” and the possibility for transformation. Considered a pioneer of transactional practices in Quebec, Stanton has presented exhibitions, performances, infiltrating actions, and films/videos in Canada, the U.S., Europe, the U.K., Australia, Japan and Mexico.
For the festival “Live Art for Children 2018″, she presented the work “Full circle – what goes around comes around”. Here, children can feed adults – parents or strangers – and there is food for thought about the life-long relations with food, that are established in our childhood.
