Elisa Julia Gilmour is a Toronto-based artist working with still and moving images that explore cultural, familial and gender identities. Her video and sound installation Over their Own (2015) examines the complexities of motherhood through photographic and cinematic portraits of personal, fictional and historical characters. In 2016 she created Éperdument (Madly), composed of a three-channel video installation and a publication of short stories, which investigates how the Corsican mythological figure of the mazzere has enlivened a contemporary sense of identity. Gilmour is currently writing a script about intergenerational ruptures caused by emigration.
