Cheryl Rondeau

Cheryl Rondeau is a visual artist who works with both still and moving imagery to transform moments of transition and quotidian into the monumental with the intent of exposing influences and mechanics that mediate representation and identity. Her practice can mimic investigative scientific method, embrace the thievery of appropriation or inhabit the role of storyteller – in all cases, she collects, isolates and extracts specific gestures and moments constructing an intermix of the real and fabricated. Her visual arrangements are rhythmic compilations of repetition and mimicry creating images of ambivalence and agency. Born in St. Catharines (Canada), Rondeau studied photography and video at the Ontario College of Art (Toronto) and has a Bachelor of Arts degree in Social/Cultural Anthropology from the University of Toronto. Her work has been included in exhibitions and festivals internationally including Festival international du film sur l’art (Montreal, Québec) Mediawave International Festival of Visual Arts (Gyor, Hungary), Scope Art Fair (New York City) and Museum of Modern Art (Bogota, Colombia). Rondeau is co-founder (with Mercedes Cueto and Darlene Naponse) of the Elements Collective.
