Prostitute 4

Prostitute 4 est une présentation de l’expérience féminine. L’artiste cherche à comprendre l’apport de trois aspects de la vie humaine – l’amitié, la relation amoureuse et le traumatisme – à la fondation identitaire du sujet féminin. Sur le plan émotionnel, cette scène symbolique a le pouvoir de favoriser une connexion avec les spectateurs et entre eux. Afin de tenter une identité collective, elle cultive les échanges et stimule l’empathie envers des expériences étrangères.

Cindy Phenix, originally from Montreal, is currently based in Chicago, where she is studying for her MFA in art theory and practice at Northwestern University. She received a BFA with distinction from Concordia University. Her work has been included in exhibitions at Hyde Park Art Center (Chicago) and Contemporary Art Gallery (Vancouver). In 2015, she was listed as one of the top 15 emerging artists in RBC‘s prestigious Canadian Painting Competition. Phenix’s practice is inspired by social issues in conjunction with the individual’s place in society, inequality, and power relations. Through her research, she analyzes the impact of the other’s gaze at the construction of personal identity. She is interested in the behaviour of individuals in the public sphere, which appears to her as a dynamic territory of tensions among stimuli, freedom, and pleasure, as well as trauma, solitude, and alienation.
