Vida Simon is a visual artist whose work incorporates drawing, writing, found/hand-crafted objects, sound, and movement, combined to form site-responsive installations and performances. Her work has been presented internationally, in a wide range of contexts – galleries, hotel rooms, people’s homes, storefront windows, theatres, rooftops, and books. Drawing live often plays a central role in her performances, as a way of foregrounding ephemeral gestures, materiality, and embodiment. Much of her work plays with scale extremes, through projected drawings or situating the body in relation to miniature worlds. Collaborating and teaching are also integral parts of her practice. Vida lives in Montreal.
