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. Details on the posters below.

Dream City, Dreams in Petrovac, Montenegro

This August, I was honoured to be invited to exhibit in Petrovac, Montenegro at the Marko K Gregovic Gallery. The exhibition was organized by the Canadian Embassy and has been touring in the area after my exhibition last year in Belgrade. Below are some of the pictures from the exhibition and opening. I am grateful to the gallery and the warm welcome by all the local cultural workers that took us around and shared a bit of their country with us.

A Little Bit of Infinity

Seven prints from my recent series of plexiglass prints – The Everyday Liminal – are currently showing at the U of A Museums Galleries at Enterprise Square in Edmonton as part of the group show A Little Bit of Infinity. The exhibition features print works from around the world to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Print Study Centre. The exhibition is up until January 28th with an opening on September 30th.

Barbarian Press Workshop

I recently took a 3-day workshop at Barbarian Press in Mission, BC, where I learned the basics of letterpress printing from some of the masters in the game. I printed a broadsheet with the lyrics from “Nothing Matters When We’re Dancing” by the Magnetic Fields. It was an excellent opportunity to peruse a range of beautiful printed books, sort through tons of old type, and gain valuable tips on letterpress printmaking. Pictures below!

Article: This is Not Art 

There’s an article from This is Not Art – an Italian/English site dedicated to art writing – about the Di Carta/Papermade exhibition in that my work is in. There’s a lovely write up about my piece in it. The article is in Italian but you’re just a short Google translate away from understanding plus there’s great install pictures. Enjoy!
