To be a body, is to be tied to a certain world.
In Between is a photography and video-based reflection on human and ecological movement and motion. By capturing and deconstructing aspects of movement, new physical and psychological exigencies come into play. From still and contemplative to dynamic and electrifying, the works metaphorically probe control, desire, freedom and the moments that happen in between.
Joan Kaufman is a Canadian multi-disciplinary artist whose practice is based in photography, sculpture, video and sound composition. She produces photographic, filmic, and video constructs that probe the human condition and natural order by examining provocative coping strategies for uncertainty, complexity and change inherent to contemporary life.
Kaufman has exhibited nationally and internationally; is the recipient of Canada Council, Ontario Arts Council and Manitoba Arts Council grants; and has works in both public and private collections.
