Ava Porter is a multidisciplinary artist who has worked as a photographer, installation artist, and experimental filmmaker. Over her career so far, she has used her art to analyze the “overlooked influences and exploited bystanders of Western popular (entertainment, religious, and war) culture, vis-a-vis the history of aggression and theories of embodied cognition”.[1] To reinforce her content, she usually presents film and photographic works as large-scale installations, through which viewers must walk and therefore acknowledge their own physicality. She dwells in the examination of the human condition and it is this curiosity that drives her practice.[2]
