I’m currently in Toronto attending the Sick Theories conference where I’ll be presenting on the artist panel tonight at 6pm. If you are in Toronto and are interested in the talk, registration is free, please visit the website for the conference.
I had an image and a brief writeup in the Winter 2018 issue of Canadian Art. Their issue was on wellness so I had a few brief mentions of my research mentioned in the school guide (shout out to ACAD!) and an image published as well.
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.
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.
