Evann Siebens makes media, performance and photos with movement. Her lens-based practice negotiates the human body as an archival site and the politics of the female gaze. She danced with the National Ballet of Canada and the Bonn Ballett before studying film production at New York University. She worked as a dance cinematographer for many years and shot dancers such as Mikhail Baryshnikov, Bill T. Jones and Lucinda Childs. Recent exhibitions and screenings include: Cloud Seven + WAAP Brussels (Brussels, 2024), Vancouver Art Gallery Offsite (Vancouver, 2021), MACBA (Barcelona, 2021), Kunstinstituut Melly (Rotterdam, 2020), Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts (Moscow, 2020), WAAP (Vancouver, 2019) and Belkin Gallery (Vancouver, 2019).

Her documentary work previously screened at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City and was broadcast on PBS. Evann recently screened a film at Lincoln Center in New York City and won the ‘Outstanding Overall Work’ prize at the Light Moves Festival in Limerick, Ireland. Her work from ‘A Performance Affair’ in Brussels, Belgium was featured on the front page of the International New York Times in 2019.
