Kerri Flannigan is an interdisciplinary artist and educator currently based on Lkwungen and W̱SÁNEĆ Territories (Victoria, BC), who experiments with methods of research and storytelling through installation, video, and performance. Flannigan’s practice has focused on experimental narrative and documentary formats that are rooted in wider social, cultural, and political contexts. This work frequently takes a collaborative form, working individually and collectively to create responses to ubiquitous themes. Family mythologies, coming-of-age confessions, queer experiences of place, fire, and swimming have all been subjects of recent works.
Flannigan has shown locally and internationally, receiving funding from the Canada Council for the Arts in 2023, and the BC Arts Council in 2022, and was an inaugural OUTstages resident in 2020/2021. Flannigan is currently developing two projection-based performances, Slow Dive and Wild Flame.
