Artist profile 
Cassandra Tytler
Dame Joan Sutherland Fund recipient, Performance Artist

Cassandra Tytler is an artist working within single-channel video, performance, and installation. She is particularly fascinated by the symbolism of popular clichés, and within her work pastiches isolated and fragmented cultural conventions, and shapes them into revealing stories or situations. Her work centers on the mechanics of performance and representation. She performs the roles in her videos as herself-as-cultural-stereotype, highlighting the artificial and burlesque nature of the characters she represents. Tytler’s work has a wry humor mixed with a pop sensibility, but it is also an ongoing examination of masquerade, mimicry and spectatorship.

Tytler has exhibited and screened work nationally and internationally, and has done live performance around Europe and in Melbourne. She completed her Masters degree at R.M.I.T. in 2003.
