Caecilia Tripp (based in New York City, USA and Paris, France) is a conceptual artist whose primary mediums are film installation, soundscapes, sculpture and performance. Inspired by Glissant’s Poetics of Relation, her work shines a light on forms of freedom, utopia and civil disobedience at the crossroads of our worldliness, climate change and the cosmic spheres where her collaborative pieces seek to transcend social imaginaries and fixed identities. Her work has been shown internationally in museum venues and galleries, including numerous film festivals.
