Artist Bio

Sadie Gilker (she/they) is an interdisciplinary artist residing in Montreal. Their work focuses on the history and textures of violence, memory, waiting and the more-than-human world. Essential to Sadie's art practice is recycling and reusing. They find joy in repurposing old materials that would be discarded for their imperfections. Additionally, Sadie Gilker is a recent MA graduate from the Individualized Program at Concordia University. Their thesis “Belfast’s Sites of Conflict and Structural Violence: An Exploration of the Transformation of Public Spaces Through Theatre and Performance” deals with performances of violence in Belfast’s public spaces, blending urban planning, performance studies and history to complete the analysis. Sadie spends most of their time embroidering, writing and walking.
