The Other Passport at the Red Deer Museum Galleries

September through October, I am exhibiting some new works alongside Jill Ho You and Marnie Blair at the Red Deer Museum Galleries. Our exhibition The Other Passport reflects on illness and its impacts. The title is based on a Susan Sontag quote from Illness as Metaphor: 

Illness is the night side of life, a more onerous citizenship. Everyone who is born holds dual citizenship, in the kingdom of the well and in the kingdom of the sick. Although we all prefer to use the good passport, sooner or later each of us is obliged, at least for a spell, to identify ourselves as citizens of that other place.

I’ll also be delivering an artist talk to students at Red Deer College on September 25th.

10th BIECTR 

I recently returned from Quebec where I attended the opening of the Biennale Internationale d’Estampe Contemporaine de Trois-Rivières (BIECTR). I was thrilled to be selected as one of 51 artists from around the world for this edition of the biennale. I met many excellent printmakers, saw a lot of great prints, and gave a short talk about my work in French. Install shots below: 

The 36th Bradley Print and Drawing International 

I have a print included in the 36th Bradley Print and Drawing International juried by Kathryn Polk. The exhibition opens today and runs until April 17th at four galleries in Peoria, Illinois: the Heuser Art Center and Hartmann Center Gallery, Studios on Sheridan, Prairie Center of the Arts, and the contemporary Art Center. 

I am Wearing Clothes but I am Naked 

My work I am Wearing Clothes but I am Naked is my contribution to the exhibition Flux showing right now at DC3 Art Projects in Edmonton. It was created in response to the year long research project on patient experiences dealing head and neck cancers. It brought together artists, medical researchers, and patients to share and translate cancer experiences. 

My piece deals with the aftermath of recovery, the distance that patients feel from their everyday life and specifically how fraught the social activity of eating becomes. 

Flux

I am pleased to be part of Flux, opening January 5th at DC3 Art Projects in Edmonton. This exhibition is the result of the year-long research project See Me, Hear Me, Heal Me where researchers, medical practitioners and artists worked with patients who were recovering from head and neck cancers.
