Destabilizing Gender

by Sabine Russ

Make Magazine, Spring 2001, no. 91, pp. 9-13

Russ reviews Cantor's body of work including her drawings, paintings, and videos.

She positions Cantor as a feminist who samples and appropriates stories and images from pop culture, fairy tales, as well as canonical works as an intervention, deconstructing stereotypes and gender roles.

Russ highlights Cantor's talent at combining images from seemingly disparate sources in a way that explode with raw emotions and yet remain fluid, beautiful, and poetic.
