Sally Van Gorder
Sally Van Gorder is an interdisciplinary artist whose practice investigates the intersections of identity, self-representation and social structures. Using a wide range of media and systems of collection, documentation and classification, Van Gorder creates work that addresses impermanence and
autobiography in domestic environments. Her process melds comprehensive subject matter research with experimental, iterative making to create work that simultaneously reveals and discovers. She leverages ambiguity and contradiction to expose the enigmatic in the human and divine. Her work resides in the realms of experimental documentary, time-based media, installation, printmaking and science photography.
Van Gorder received her BA in Studio Art from Meredith College and a Master of Art + Design in Animation and Interactive Media from North Carolina State University. She has exhibited work at the North Carolina Museum of Art, Southeastern Center for Contemporary Art, Contemporary Art Museum Raleigh, Duke University Museum of Art and The Ukrainian Institute of Modern Art. Her films have been screened at the Ann Arbor Film Festival, DOXA Vancouver, 1 Reel Film Festival Seattle and the
Yamagata International Documentary Film Festival.
