Stephanie Cormier

Page 1 | 2 | 3 | Biography



Cormier’s practice includes photography, video, sound and sculpture installation. Cormier “sculpts, draws and paints” with everyday materials using objects that are either plentiful and recycled or conversely nostalgic or obsolete. She enjoys giving these humble objects a new and honorable context and exploring both loss and displacement as well as over-production and waste.
The photographic work started with the “The Goodwill and Salvation Project”. In this project forty used dresses were purchased from Goodwill and Salvation Army stores. Short inspirational quotes from nostalgic pop songs were embroidered in each dress. These dresses were used as sculptural material to build and rebuild various organic forms. After documentation, all of the dresses were returned to the same thrift stores where originally purchased.
Further series continued as self-portrait documentations of a wardrobe; personal taste and consumerism.
New media work uses similar compositions in time based or sound media, melding the organic forms with plastic or synthetic materials and the mechanics of manufactured goods. These works explore our changing culture through contemporary mass production as well as the loss of familiar objects, sounds (dial tones or records spinning) and technology.
