Rudy Radul (Vancouver, Canada) is an artist whose interdisciplinary practice has recently focused on video installation but also includes sculpture, photography, performance and mixed media installations. She has exhibited her work nationally and internationally, and her creative writing and essays have appeared in a variety of publications since 1991. Her latest and most ambitious work is called World Rehearsal Court (2009). A large-scale media installation, this work draws on Radul’s research into the role of theatricality and new technologies in the court of law and questions the distinctions between experience, testimony, truth and fiction that the law attempts to make distinct. In 2009 this work was the subject of a solo exhibition at the Morris and Helen Belkin Gallery, University of British Columbia, Vancouver and has travelled to the Generali Foudation, Vienna; Media City Seoul; and in 2011 will be mounted in a solo exhibition at the Henie-Onstad Art Center, Oslo. In 2000 she received her MFA in visual and media arts from Bard College, Annandale-on-Hudson. Radul is currently chair of the graduate program at the School for the Contemporary Arts, Simon Fraser University, Vancouver.
