Faye Mullen, often through a dissection of architectural space,employs the body to speculate theories concerning loss, lack and limitation. Her work has been informed by a sculptural practice and is often combined with performance, video and installation. Her phenomenological investigations of absence and presence are articulated through durational and poetic imagery. Mullen was born in the Niagara Region, Canada. She studied studio art with an emphasis in sculpture at l’école National Supérieure des Beaux-Arts in Paris at the Ontario College of Art & Design in Toronto as well as the University of Toronto, where she received her Master’s degree. Mullen has exhibited internationally in solo and curated group exhibitions in Australia, Canada, France, South Korea, USA and has participated in international artist residencies in Buffalo, Saint-Jean-Port-Joli, Wongil and on the Toronto islands. She is the founder of minnow & bass Gallery, a nomadic space.Currently, Faye situates her practice in Toronto.
