Janet Biggs is a Brooklyn-based artist whose video, photography, and performance work seeks to explore physical and geographical extremes. Regardless of chosen media, Biggs is consistent in testing the limits of her subjects and herself. By putting her subjects through these ultimate tests, observers are given the opportunity to witness how the definition of an individual can change when faced with extremes. Biggs' solo exhibitions include Janet Biggs: A Step on the Sun, Neuberger Museum of Art, Purchase, NY (2017); Echo of the Unknown, UWAG: University of Waterloo Art Gallery, Ontario, Canada (2016); Airs Above the Ground, Analix Forever Gallery, Geneva, Switzerland (2014).

“"I think it’s essential for seemingly opposite elements and actions to coexist in my work – hard and soft, organic and inorganic, stay or go. All these elements or actions have the potential to cancel each other out, or the potential to create a new state or possibility." ” - JANET BIGGS
