Embodied Performance by Jeremy Gordaneer
Jeremy Gordaneer was born in Ontario and grew up in Victoria, BC. As the son of Canadian painter James Gordaneer, RCA, he was surrounded by art and began taking an interest in painting at an early age. He attended the Camosun College Fine Arts program in Victoria in the early ‘90s, and has traveled extensively throughout Europe, Africa and America in order to study art and hone his craft. He spent a decade in Victoria as a member of the Chapman Group, a loose collective of artists and writers, who met weekly to study art, philosophy, physics and theology, as well as to provide a rigorous critique of each other’s work. During this time, he studied Theatre at the University of Victoria, and continues to support himself through scenic art and design for theatre and dance, while also painting, sculpting and drawing on a regular basis. His work in dance/performance has taken him across Canada and several times to Europe. After living and working in Montreal for the last 12 years, he has recently moved to Edmonton to pursue a Masters in Theatre Design at the University of Alberta.
