Voices – Cat Del Buono

Elizabeth Dunlap Patrick Gallery
Rutledge Building

Voices is 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. 

Cat 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.
