Christina Kingsbury’s multidisciplinary art practice is inspired by quilting and explores themes of place, ecology, reciprocity and care labour through somatic practices. Her work takes the form of performance, installation, sculpture and social practice. Christina collaborates regularly with poets, ecologists, artists, choreographers and the public (including ecological public) to create relational works that offer a quiet and radical challenge to the commodification of life.
Christina received a BFA in Visual Art with a minor in Environmental Studies from York University (2005). Her solo and collaborative work has been shown as public interventions, in curated exhibitions including Cambridge Galleries (2018) the Gladstone Grow Op (Toronto 2016), the Art Gallery of Guelph’s Boarding House Gallery (2016) and at events including Kazoo Fest (2017) and ALT/Futures: Eco_Hack (New York and Taiwan 2016). She has been granted awards for her work through the Ontario Arts Council, the Guelph Community Foundation and The Elevator Project.
