Biography

McGill- and OCAD-trained, Toronto-based Zeidler’s short comic videos and Super 8 films since 1994 have been popular at queer and handmade festivals. Her talent for parody has prevailed over such macho genres as blaxploitation (Soulsucka, 1995, 3), Xtreme sports cablecasting ( Dogboganning, 1998, 3) and porno ( Desire, 1994, 5), where the reflecting object of lust is a sensuous chrome teakettle. Zeidler collaborated with other stalwarts of the DIY community including Allyson Mitchell with whom Zeidler formed the Freeshow Seymour collective in 2003 to indulge each other’s obsessions with sweets and pets respectively.
