Didier Morelli is an interdisciplinary artist who combines practice and research in both his academic and performative explorations. His live art practice includes endurance-based durational actions and contextually specific relational interactions. His studio-based work, which includes drawing, collage, photography, and video, has been shown in solo exhibitions (notably at the Katherine Mulherin Gallery in Toronto) as well as in group exhibitions (the Audain Gallery in Vancouver and at the Civic Space in Windsor). He has performed at Nuit Blanche (Montreal, 2013) and at the 7a*11d International Festival of Performance Art (Toronto, 2014). In 2015, he held a two-week residency at Defibrillator Gallery (Chicago) as part of the programming for the Chicago Architecture Biennial where he performed, exhibited, and coordinated a panel with local artists, critics, and scholars. Born and raised in Montreal, Didier Morelli is presently a PhD student in Performance Studies at Northwestern University, in Evanston, Illinois.
