Tanya Doody ~ [21st century] Canadian
Tanya Doody is an interdisciplinary artist who works in ceramics/sculpture, performance, and video. Her work proposes strategies of embodiment through performative acts, poetic gestures and object making. Using touch as a means of engagement within her work is a strategy that offers direct experience and seeks to communicate embodied ways of knowing with the viewer. Ideas of materiality and the body are sought through direct, haptic experiences. Tactile experience becomes a way to reconnect the body to itself, its environment and to others. Tanya holds an MFA from the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design University in Fine and Media Arts, a BFA from University of Victoria in Visual Arts, a Diploma from Sheridan College in Crafts and Design (Ceramics), and a certificate of Fine Crafts (Ceramics) from the New Brunswick College of Craft and Design. She lives and works on traditional Blackfoot Confederacy territory, Treaty 7, in Lethbridge, Alberta.
