Caitlin Berrigan

Last Name: 
First Name: 

Caitlin Berrigan is an emerging artist in the fields of video, sculpture, performance, and interactive art. A graphic and web designer by trade, Caitlin is also an engaged activist with foci on hepatitis C education, media democracy, and gender politics. An element of social change underlies all of her work. The medicalized, merchandized, and sexualized body are among the cultural filters that influence our experience of embodiment. In her work, Caitlin Berrigan questions the world of representation through encounters between bare flesh and the fantasy of the image. She addresses our attractions and repulsions to violence, desire, and possession via performance, video, and intimate objects. Critical, but also inventive, she deconstructs the mechanisms of imagery through playful, subversive works.
