Catherine Siller

Performance Date and Time : 
Saturday, July 14 4:00 PM

 

Performed by Catherine Siller, caught in a loop of desire and dissatisfaction, a fashion mannequin travels through the history of advertising. She mimics and mocks models’ poses from ads from the 1920s to present, to a soundtrack of collaged commercials. The performance links the evolution of capitalism and traditional gender roles throughout United States’ history while questioning the role of personal agency in identity construction.
