About

 

Avery Steel (b. 1994) is a Toronto-based image artist working in a hybrid region navigating the relationship between performance and the photographic process. Avery began her artistic practice as a performer first, dancing and singing on stage for years before photography was introduced as a medium. In her process, the camera is used as a tool to document self-choreographed performance pieces in which the body and the surrounding physical environment is used to convey representations of memory and moments of intimacy.
