Kim Waldron

Kim Waldron’s art practice makes frequent use of self-portraiture as a means to engage with contemporary social situations. Through addressing the idea that reality is always a construction, over the years her work has questioned the role of images and the importance of context as discourse. The conceptual framework of her photographic series is based on the boundary that defines reality and fiction. Not only is self-representation an integral component of her work, the contexts that she uses to create these narratives is equally as important. Kim Waldron was born in Montreal, Canada and graduated from NSCAD University in 2003. She has exhibited extensively, most notably at the Musée régional de Rimouski, Œil de Poisson, Vu, Gallery 44, Eyelevel Gallery, Eastern Edge Gallery, Art Gallery of Windsor and La Centrale. She has been an artist-in-residence in Vienna offered by the Austrian Federal Ministry and in Newfoundland at the English Harbour Arts Centre.
