BIO

Her artistic practice is based in developing performative actions that include interactive elements of touch and polysemous queer gestures. She is interested in communal interaction, materiality, tactility, desire, and the potential for objects to function as both symbols of self and surrogates for intimacy.

Müller St. Thomas holds a BFA from Western University and recently completed her MFA at York University. She is a beneficiary of the SSHRC Joseph-Armand Bombardier CGS Masters Scholarship (2016). Recent exhibitions include Things Little, curated by Vanessa Nicholas, art( i f)ACTS, curated by Belinda Ho-Yan Kwan, A National Test Market, (Artspace) curated by Jonathan Lockyer, and Hamilton Now: Subject, (Art Gallery of Hamilton) curated by Melissa Bennett.
