Broadbent Sisters: Rose & Joy Broadbent
Joy and Rose Broadbent are sisters (duh!) and multidisciplinary artists based in Toronto. As they say, together they transform the domestic into dreamlike realms where sparkles are swept and spaces are cleared. The Broadbent Sisters use performance and installation to create interactive experiences that transform lowly everyday objects into mystical artifacts. Their unfolding art practise, 'Clearing Spaces' examines themes of domestic life, meditation, femininity, religious ritual, and pop spirituality. They have produced multiple exhibitions in the series 'Clearing Spaces'; which have been shown internationally at the Festival Du Nouveau Cinema, TRAFO Centre for Contemporary Art, the AGO, HUNTCLUB, Katzman Contemporary, The Drake Hotel, and as part of the Sunday Drive Art Projects. Joy and Rose find collaboration to be a unique venue for distilling the essence of form and exploring telepathic ways of creating.
