About the Instructor

James Knott is an emerging, Toronto-based artist, having received a Bachelors of Fine Arts in Integrated Media from OCAD University . Their performance-based practice combines theatre, video, and audio art to create immersive and emotionally resonant experiences for the viewer.

Currently their practice looks to house personal narratives and queer experience through poetic retellings, self mythologizing, and auto-iconographic aestheticism. Explored themes include: paradoxical and queer identity, inner dialogue, mental illness, and camp theatrics. Recent projects have placed an emphasis on movement/gesture, queer personae, archetypes of desire, and the commodification of the femme body.

An alumni of The Roundtable Residency, they’ve exhibited/performed at Xpace Cultural Centre, the Toronto Feminist Art Conference, The Artist Project Contemporary Art Fair, the 7a*11d International Festival of Performance Art, the Art Gallery of Hamilton, and the AGO’s First Thursdays.
