Just a very few more days …

Just a very few more days …

… and Chaotic Bodies will close at Spazio Performativo. Amazing how fast the month has gone by – I’ve been too buried in the never-ending-cold-that-should-be-spring here to actually grasp that time is really passing quite quickly, and we are over 1/4 of the way through the year. It has been a great experience re-working this […]

Chaotic Bodies Opening Thursday Mar 8!

Chaotic Bodies Opening Thursday Mar 8!

I am excited to be presenting a dance-infused project in Mile Zero Dance’s Spazio Gallery! The multi-media installation Chaotic Bodies will be on view in the window gallery until April 8th, so stop by Mile Zero Dance and have a look. (after dark the work takes on a new life!) If you are in the area, […]

Thinking about Bodies & Control

Thinking about Bodies & Control

I am looking toward the Opening of Chaotic Bodies this Thursday at Mile Zero Dance – and not surprisingly, I am thinking a great deal about relationship, space, and how our bodies convey information. What we communicate with gesture and movement is so vital to our understanding – to meaning-making – but also to the way […]

Some thoughts on leaving and coming back

Some thoughts on leaving and coming back

I am preparing to fly West this afternoon, after a busy and very productive several months in various spots in Nova Scotia. A great residency with Scott Smallwood, and new work launched in Parrsboro, at Main & Station. The start of some new and exciting collaborations with Deborah Carruthers and with Susan Tooke.  Time to […]

And the Tide Turns

And the Tide Turns

I’ve been hunkered down and quiet the last while, for a number of reasons. Travel – back west and then back east – for the AGM of Visual Arts Alberta – CARFAC, and for a memorial service in Calgary. Work – finishing up some experiments in cyanotype (!), and writing a grant report. Taking a […]

Making … and Unmaking

The process of installing (and then striking) and exhibition always feels a little bit like alchemy to me. It’s the presentation of a series of things transformed: from the raw materials, to the work, to the exhibition itself … and then it all disappears again. Of course it’s not that at all in practical terms. […]

Generosity … and Many, Many Thanks

Generosity … and Many, Many Thanks

It’s been a remarkable time; the residency and performance, the talk, the exhibition … and now that it’s all done and packed up, a little time to reflect. The first week was all about slowing down, getting reacquainted with the town and the land … shifting gears, not unlike the tides here do every 12 […]

Last Week for the Exhibition!

Last Week for the Exhibition!

I’m a little boggled by how the days have passed by since our exhibition opened.  Just this week, and I’m back to Parrsboro to take down the show, and pack it all up for shipping. I’ve been really quite chuffed by the feedback we have been getting on the work. Our lovely hosts at Main […]

macromareal: a rising tide lifts all boats

Our exhibition is officially open! Had a lovely time at the opening reception yesterday afternoon; some great conversations with people, and a good turn out! Lovely food too – thanks to Judith at Main & Station! I was quite struck with the reaction of people to the show: several guests stayed for a long time, […]

Already?! The Exhibition Opens Tomorrow!

Already?! The Exhibition Opens Tomorrow!

The days have been flying past, and I find myself here, on the eve of our exhibition opening in Parrsboro! I am looking forward to sharing the work Scott and I have been developing over the course of this residency, and interested in hearing feedback about it.   For those in the area of Parrsboro, […]
