Astrid Lloyd

Canada
Statement

Curiosity about the human body and the spaces around it has consistently preoccupied Lloyd’s artistic imagination. Specifically, Lloyd have been asking questions about the bodies of women and how they relate to the architectures that direct their movement.  How do material structures inside and outside bodies influence identity and agency? How do women find freedom now?  As a visual artist, Lloyd asks these questions using fibres of all kinds with traditional and improvised textile methods resulting in costumes, performances and installations. In doing so, the physical activity of tying and untying knots demonstrates the theoretical activity of connection and distinction. That is to say, how we join with and separate from our environments.
