Catherine Sullivan's anxiety-inducing films and live performances reveal the degree to which everyday gestures and emotional states are scripted and performed, probing the border between innate and learned behavior. Sullivan's appropriation of classic Hollywood filming styles, period costumes, and contemporary spaces such as corporate offices draws the viewer's attention away from traditional narratives and towards an examination of performance itself. Catherine Sullivan is featured in the Season 4 episode "Paradox" of the Art21 series "Art in the Twenty-First Century".
