Born 1968 in Los Angeles, where she lives and works,
Catherine Sullivan began with an interest in
theatre and performance before moving
into the visual arts. Armed with the fruits of
research by the Los Angeles art scene into
the formal structures of popular culture, she
now works on encounters between the work
and codes of actors and the critical and formal
tools of contemporary art, layering cultural
references to create complex installations.
Her films and theatrical mises-en-scène have recently been presented at the Lyon Biennale 2003 and the Whitney Biennial 2004.
