American artist Catherine Sullivan initially trained as an actress, and although she has worked in a variety of media, she is best known for theatre and video work that explores the conventions of performance and role-playing. Sullivan uses a wide range of historical and cultural references – including film noir, avant-garde cinema, contemporary art and the history of theatre – to explore the tensions between performers, their roles and their audience.
