Caitlyn Cook is a South African-New Zealand multidisciplinary artist working across performance, digital, video and installation. Her work centres embodiedness and explores themes of freedom, authenticity, intimacy, and enchantment.
She’s interested in finding new ways to derobe, unmask, see and be seen. Her work seeks to create space for possibility, taking risks in the unknown and supra-rational knowing. Caitlyn’s influences are broad, including shamanism and sexual alchemy, acting, psychodrama, mindfulness, embodied Geography, the senses, movement, her mother (the female David Bowie) and ritual.
Caitlyn is also a mindful sexuality and shamanic healing practitioner and facilitates 1:1 and group work.
Caitlyn has presented group shows and performances internationally. She’s presented at Darwin Visual Arts Association (2015), Month Of Performance Art-Berlin (2015), George Paton Gallery (2015), Victorian College of Arts (2014), Remedy Performance (Margaret Lawrence Gallery, 2014) and Signal Live Arts Festival (Melbourne University, 2014). Caitlyn has also presented multiple group and 1:1 works in Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa in non-gallery contexts (2016-to date).
