Feedback Loop, vis à vis with Cathleen Owens

Some people say: “The artwork is inseparable from the artist”.

In the case of Cathleen Owens this dictum is not only true by evident but concept. In her performative video works she applies linguistic variations such as change of pronunciation, color of tone, and emotional transmissions to such dictums, hearsay, platitudes, and ‘old wife tales’ we all know too good.
In her pursuit to counteract her and our super-ego or conscience, it is sometimes lost what came first: Her art practice or the doubts about it?

What we can say with certainty is that her messages are more than mere repetitions of mantras on how to do or not to do things, namely a mirror for a society stuck in a feedback loop.
