Isabella Catenaro

(them, they, theirs)

Isabella Catenaro is an emerging artist based in Meanjin (Brisbane), Australia. Their sensorial works, ritualistic performances and installations, contaminate physical and digital spaces to confront demarcated orders. Through installing edible, playful, or performance-based pieces, Isabella inspects a disruptive tension in the relationship between control and the “stain”. Defective receptacles made from sewing thread, glass or metal become symbolic of purity, scandal and labour. Their representation of the queer AFAB body converging with the Biblical identity of Christ resists the pseudo-dilemma of binarisms, transgressing and transcending the traditional gender-essentialist axis.
