Hothouse 7: March 14 - June 03, 2011

Candace Couse

Watch Sick

The body is a magnificent system. But its harmony can be interrupted, sometimes by subversive agents within. Sick uses stop motion to bring to life a knitted body in a fanciful journey through the pulsating organs and dark recesses of the human body.

HH7-CandaceCandace Couse holds an MFA degree from the University of Calgary. Conceptualizing the body as both a vehicle that allows us to survey and understand our world and as a world unto itself, available for discovery and understanding, Candace utilizes unexpected materials and mediums to craft journeys into the unexplored.

Technique: Stop-motion animation using knitted objects.

Length: 1 min 26 s
