Valerie Carew is a multi-disciplinary artist with a focus in textile media, sculpture/ installation, performance and embodiment. She is a graduate from the Interdisciplinary Master’s in Art, Media and Design Program at OCAD University. In her personal practice, Valerie seeks out local species in the natural world which characterize her own reclusive tendencies, and applies these attributes to contexts related to domesticity and gendered norms. Valerie explores these comparisons in dwelling through role-play, field research and home focused material exploration. She has exhibited internationally, including F Generation: Feminism, Art, Progressions in Melbourne, Australia (2015), and more recently Hard Twist 11 and Nuit Blanche at The Gladstone Hotel (2016).
