Domesticity

Experimental Canada 2013 No dialogue 0:04:17

House music and domestic craft become one in a dazzling display of cozy hypnosis. Intricate videocraft melts one precious handmade item into another through luminescent mapping.

Coral Short was born on a beautiful island off the west coast of Canada and was raised by a lively river in the countryside where her eccentric family lived off the land. She spends a fair amount of time dispersing her magic around the globe – in the air, on railroad tracks and highways all the while curating and doing artist residencies. Coral has lived and created art in Asia, North America, and Europe for the last 15 years. She has many beloved people, communities, and locations that she calls home. Short and her countless projects move at the speed of light; ironically she is the most still when she travels.


Coral Short est une artiste prolifique en performance, son et vidéo. Humour, fantaisie et transformation sont des composantes intégrales de sa pratique. Son travail comble le fossé entre le nightlife et les beaux-arts, en mobilisant l’imaginaire collectif de ces communautésENTITÉS?. Son travail contribue à cartographier le pouvoir et l’identité de la nouvelle génération queer. Elle réside actuellement à Montréal et New York.
