Kristin McWharter is a multi- disciplinary artist whose work interrogates the relationship between competition and intimacy. Her research explores where personal experiences of awkwardness manifest from within both individual and group perspectives. She uses immersive sculptural installations, videos, and viewer- inclusive performances to blur the boundaries of social intimacy and personal narrative in an effort to invoke viewer’s individual relationships to affection, antagonism, sincerity and discomfort.
