Odile’s CV︎︎

Odile Postic (b. Florida, USA) is a video and performance artist. She was born and raised in the southeastern United States and received her BFA from VCUarts with Magna Cum Laude distinctions in Kinetic Imaging and Art History. In 2022, she graduated from Glasgow School of Art with her Masters of Letters in Fine Art Practice and went on to pursue a career in academia while continuing to cultivate her studio practice abroad from a residency in France.

In 2022, Postic performed her piece “USDA & FDA Presentation”. The performance took place at Baked Beans on the Doorstep at the Old Hairdressers and Strewn Taboos at the GSA Barnes Garage space. Postic performed under the character name Patty Winters. Patty is a lovable idiot from central Florida who works for the United States government and has an irrational fear of foreign seeds compromising national security. Postic passed out brochures she illustrated and lectured the audience over the hum of a 35mm projector with hand drawn slides.

Postic has taken her films on tour in the US and has shown works like iBooks (2019) in the 57th annual Ann Arbor Film Festival and the Imagine Science Film Festival in New York City (2019). iBooks is a short film that examines the physical body’s evolving relationship with digital interfaces.

Numbers not Math (2019) is Odile Postic’s undergraduate thesis film she produced during the final 2 years of her scholarship at VCUarts. The work manifests itself through paintings, writings, and performance and culminates in a 16 minute short film. Like the majority of her work, Numbers not Math uses pedagogy as a frame of reference in order to participate in its own critique. The film scrutinizes the new age mindfulness movement, institutional critique, neoliberalism and the founding principles of conceptual art.

Since 2019, Odile continues to work as a freelance animator for former professor and collaborator Orla McHardy on an exhibition and film titled Nightfeedz. This work is funded by the Irish Arts Council and the VCU Dean’s Faculty Research Grant.
