Catharine Cary was featured at the Venice Biennale 2011 for the installation WHISPER – a dress of silk organza sewn with 80 envelopes filled with essential elegant ephemera.
Catharine Cary is called "la tagueuse élégante" as she dashes off repetitive euphoric texts on walls and windows, legally and illegally, and more and more frequently.
Catharine Cary is also "Instant Pudding", a platform for instant dance composition for museums and galleries or anywhere you don’t expect to see dance. Most recent Puddings sited at the Banff Centre in Alberta, Canada.
Former project manager for big complicated urban development projects in New York (her last was the New Amsterdam Theatre for Disney), Catharine Cary moved to Paris in 1997 to paint. Her first show was only two years later. She has shown and sold, and continues to do both.
Otherwise, she has lived and worked in over 26 countries across 3 continents. An exile interested in reconnecting with her mother tongue, she gardens. She’d be 100% French if she would just give in and make confiture.
