Erin Gould is a multimedia artist working primarily with sculpture, video, and performance. She received her MFA degree in Sculpture in Spring 2020. Erin participated in the Land Art of the American West program in 2018. Before moving to Albuquerque in 2017, she lived in Santa Fe for four years after finishing her Bachelor of Arts degree at Colorado College in 2013. Living with a chronic and painful autoimmune disease and surviving a decade-long eating disorder fed Gould’s interest in how we perceive and live inside our bodies and how our bodies sometimes seem to live without us.
