In her work, Caecilia Tripp uses film installation, photography and performance, playing with cinematic codes and using forms of re-enactment and repetition that emerge from the collective imagination. She views the latter as a space of transgression of social and cultural boundaries.
Caecilia Tripp has always been interested in the question of construction, fluidity and the surpassing of identities. Influenced by the theme or concept of trickery-a form of cunning resistance, at work in collective rituals, and a means of transgressing social and cultural boundaries-her work is imbued with codes like misappropriation, disguise, reinterpretation and re-enactment. Her work has been shown in the following venues: PS1 / MOMA New York, USA; the 7th Gwangju Biennale 2008; the Musée d'Art Moderne, Paris; the Clark House Initiative, Mumbai, India; the Center of Contemporary Arts, New Orleans, USA; the Zacheta Gallery Warsaw, Poland; the Brooklyn Museum New York, USA; the Bronx Museum New York, USA, and more recently at the Centre d'Art Contemporain d'Ivry, Le Credac, Yvry-sur-Seine (France).
