Shawna Dempsey

Performance artists Shawna Dempsey and Lorri Millan have toured internationally for over 25 years. Their films and videos have been screened in venues ranging from the Museum of Modern Art to women's centres in Sri Lanka, and include provocative, humerous works such as We're Talking Vulva and Lesbian National Parks and Services. Dempsey and Millan's site-specific installations have included the creation of talking heads for decapitated Greek sculptures in the Royal Ontario Museum (Archaeology and You) and a functioning midway, complete with rides and cotton candy, that closed the nexus of Canada's financial district, Bay Street (Wild Ride). Past publications include the Winnipeg Tarot Co. Tarot Deck, In The Life (a companion to the film A Day in the Life of a Bull-Dyke), and the Lesbian National Parks and Services Field Guide to North America. Winnipeg, Canada, the geographical centre of North America, is their chosen home.
