Katherine Parthimos was born and raised in Montreal. Recently graduated from the Visual Arts program at Dawson College, she is now an undergraduate student at Concordia University. Visual arts have always been her greatest passion, notably painting, sculpture and Internet art.
Five Crucial Tips to Outrun Marina Abramovic is an exhibition of interactive works curated by Olivier Forgues, in collaboration with Art Souterrain. Nine multidisciplinary artists move from leisure to idleness and offer you the results - some of the art is edible, and that’s a perk. Virtuoso, slackers: can they work together? Tongue-in-cheek, engrossing, and above all interactive, these new works blur the boundary between artist and audience, the academy and play. From the everyday to the uncanny, expect digital trompe-l’oeil, celebrity lookalikes, inflatables, and (impeccably tasteful) genitalia.
