In 2019, Siebens has held residencies at the TRII Art Hub in Athens (2019), UNIT/PITT in Vancouver (2016), ACME Studios in London, UK (2011), and more. Siebens holds a BA in Film Production from New York University (1996) and was a graduate from the National Ballet School of Canada in 1990. Evann Siebens is represented by Wil Aballe Art Projects. In 2015, Evann Siebens presented a solo exhibition at BAF called deConstruction - a collection of photographs and moving image works documenting the recent gentrification and urbanization (destruction) of the City of Vancouver. In 2017 Siebens participated in Façade Festival with BAF at the VAG.
Siebens’s lens-based practice considers the body – and its gesture captured in-the-moment or through still or moving image – as an archive. Bodily Frame was first exhibited at BAF as a part of her solo exhibition deConstruction presenting tender observations of the last moments of buildings before demolition, and an acknowledgment of rapily disappearing historical structures. This work is edition 1/5.
