Artist, performer and filmmaker, Maidoff’s work is held in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art, New York, and in the Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art at the Brooklyn Museum. Her films have toured internationally, including screenings at the Guggenheim and Pecci Museums. She has been a recipient of artist residencies at Yaddo, VCCA, and the Wexner Center for the Arts.
In her most recent work, visual essays unfold in triptych as Maidoff takes on the characters of a sleepwalker, cowgirl and then motherboard in a three-part series called, "Live Cinema!"
She is currently a Visiting Assistant Professor at Ohio University.
My current work expresses the world that exists on the left, right, and center-screen of our minds. Our attention is always split, particularly as we navigate a multitude of screens between phones, computers, TVs. The effort to make sense of these screens creates a narrative as we jump from source to source, connecting, like a motherboard between systems, selecting and de-selecting where to look. We operate on several planes at once, and from this we weave an existence which ultimately knits together a cohesive whole. It is this product which fascinates me, making sense of disparate parts, as is demanded when attending a three-ring circus.
As a filmmaker, professor, and mother, I juggle my dissimilar roles and find meaning.
