Voices – Cat Del Buono
Elizabeth Dunlap Patrick Gallery
an exhibition designed to draw attention to domestic violence,
eradicate the silence that surrounds it and empower survivors. On 20
small video monitors, anonymous domestic violence survivors recount
personal traumas. As a collection, the concert of voices creates a
symphony of incomprehensible words - the viewer must come close to hear
each narrative clearly. Del Buono's installation reminds audiences that
there are real human beings behind the statistics. Del Buono will work
with local organizations to capture the personal experiences of women in
our community as part of the installation.
del Buono was born and raised in Meriden, Connecticut. She received a
BA from Boston College, an MFA from the School of Visual Arts, and
attended the graduate film program at NYU Tisch School of the Arts.
Trained as a photographer and filmmaker, Cat now focuses on creating
video installations and public happenings. She incorporates performance,
interactive video, and humor as ways to engage and impact her viewers.

The exhibition "Voices" by Cat del Buono is supported by ISE Cultural Foundation NY.
