Sherry Wiggins

Sherry Wiggins' most recent project, "The Unknown Heroine." Wiggins initiated a new body of performative photographic works with photographer Luís Filipe Branco. This project is based on Wiggins’ intellectual interaction with, and physical embodiment of French feminist, surrealist writer and artist extraordinaire Claude Cahun (1894-1954).

 

Wiggins is an interdisciplinary artist and a global art activist. Her work is reflective, often participatory, and rooted within cultural difference, spiritual transformation, social justice and women’s issues. She is concerned with art as a specifically feminine/feminist relational process and enactment. Since 2013 Wiggins has been working on an international project titled “Searching Selves.” Through extensive research and consideration she identifies artists whose work corresponds with her own in content, process, and/or material.

 

These investigations have led her to Portuguese conceptualist Helena Almeida (b.1934), Russian-American avant- garde filmmaker Maya Deren (1917-1961), and Indian minimalist Nasreen Mohamedi (1937- 1990), among others.

 

Exhibitions of her work include venues in China, Europe, India, Korea, Mexico, the Middle East, South America, as well as in Colorado and throughout the United States.

 

She received both BFA (1988) and MFA (2005) degrees from the University of Colorado, Boulder.
