Zoe Kirk-Gushowaty is an artist living on the unceded territory of the Coast Salish peoples-Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), Stó:lō and Sə ̓lílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) and xʷməθkʷəy̓ əm (Musqueam) Nations, commonly known as Vancouver. She works experimentally with moving image and sound and has made a number of short films focusing on the existential connections between inner hidden worlds and physical environments. These works often explore the role image making technologies play in defining, changing and shaping our experience. Zoe is interested in the tactile processes of analog filmmaking and much of her work incorporates 16mm and 8mm formats. She is a founding member of the Iris Film Collective whose work has been shown in the form of multi channel screenings, installations and performances in festivals, galleries and museums internationally.
