Paulette Phillips

Paulette Phillips has established an international reputation for her tense, humorous and uncanny explorations of the phenomena of conflicting energies. Working in various media including video, sculpture, performance and photography, she is interested in the contradictions that play out in our construction of stability. Her work questions the implied strength of structures like “human nature”, knowledge and architecture and how over time these structures are contested, disappear or get reclaimed by nature.

Toronto-based Paulette Phillips’ work has been featured in solo exhibitions at Danielle Arnaud Contemporary Art, The Oakville Galleries, Cambridge Galleries, and The Ottawa Art Gallery. Recent group exhibitions include: Galerie Chomette, Paris; The Canadian Cultural Centre, Paris; and The Power Plant, Toronto. Phillips teaches film and installation at The Ontario College of Art and Design.
