‘Handle with care (a practice in losing control)’ considers accumulation through simultaneous Sudoku, corroding Jenga, and a sprawling pile of dishes. Carmen Belanger delves into the psychological landscapes of mental illness by exploring the repetitive and cyclical nature of the everyday. Through performance, video, and sculpture, Belanger examines the mixed messaging of the current self-care and hustle cultures.
Carmen Belanger is an interdisciplinary artist from Prince Edward Island. She received a B.A. in Performance from the University of the West of Scotland in 2011 and a B.F.A in Ceramics from the Alberta University of the Arts in 2020. She makes work in response to the objects and rituals of the everyday.
