ARTIST BIO
Carrie FertiG

Carrie Fertig is a socially engaged interdisciplinary artist working in performance, video, sound, and installation, sometimes simultaneously. In her practice, Carrie makes compelling and safe situations and environments inviting deep introspection from viewers and participants. Much of my work is an exploration of difficult and uncomfortable aspects of being human: dying and forgiveness. Carries work explores pushing societal norms around dying and the lack of conversation about the inevitable.
