Sandra Vida

Embracing a time-based, multi-disciplinary approach that explores innovative combinations of media, Sandra Vida has been an important contributor to the coming of age of performance, film and video practices. Her work over the past three decades has been exhibited locally, regionally, and internationally, gleaning awards and funding support. Vida’s most compelling recent work is a series of multi-media installations that include aspects of sculpture, sound, video projection, and digital collage.

Ongoing interests over her long career include her Scottish Celtic ancestry, spiritual exploration, psychological concepts and poetic text. Performances often involve a reclaiming or restorative impulse and a meditative sensibility. In addition to her art practice, she is known for her dedication to other artists through Calgary’s artist-run centres and as an advocate for the arts.
