About & Contact
Deborah Edmeades’ work ranges between performance, the lens, object-making, and drawing. Her practice has continued at times outside of an artistic or academic context and into therapeutic and esoteric experiments. Recent interests include western mysticism, the intertwinement of its histories with those of religion, philosophy and the sciences as well as its contemporary manifestation in the ‘New Age’.
Edmeades’ work has been seen internationally at places such as the BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art, UK; Ars Electronica, Austria; Exit Art and Participant Inc. in New York City, USA; and Artspeak in Vancouver, Canada. She is a Franklin Furnace alumnus and was a visiting artist and guest lecturer of performance art at the University of Texas at Austin in 2000. In 2014, she completed an MFA at Simon Fraser University. She currently resides in Vancouver, located on the unceded territory of the Coast Salish people.
