Cathleen Owens (b. 1992, USA) is an artist predominately working with text, video, and performance on the internet. Her work often makes use of self-portraiture and performance to blur the line, between the personal and familiar, typically engaging with audiences in social media platforms instead of gallery spaces. Owens dedicated studio practice explores how much “personal” is required to achieve universal and how little personal is required to cross over towards confrontational. She holds a MA from the ArtScience Interfaculty of the Royal Academy of Art, The Hague & the Royal Conservatoire, The Hague, NL and a BFA in Photography from Fashion Institute of Technology, New York, USA. In 2015, she founded facetime den haag with artists Wessel Baarda, Afra Eisma, and Marnix van Uum.
