Patricia Reed (Canada)
(born in Ottawa, 1977) is an artist working in various media including drawing, sculpture, moving-image, photography, text and theory. Her practice reflects on structures of co-habitation, the ways in which we dwell together, and the playing out of disagreement therein. With particular interest in the contingency of social ordering, Reed’s work seeks to destabilize reified notions of operability (both actual and symbolic), through artistic and philosophical apparatuses. She exhibits internationally, with recent shows at Botkyrka Konsthall, Stockholm; 0047 Projects, Oslo; Limerick Art Gallery, Ireland; Audain Gallery, Vancouver; and Württembergischer Kunstverein, Stuttgart. As a writer, Reed has contributed several publications including: Shifter Magazine, Fillip, Art Papers, C Magazine, Framework: The Finnish Art Review, YYZ Essays, and Cognitive Architecture: From Bio-politics to Noo-politics. She lives and works in Berlin.
