PROJECTS, COLLABORATIONS AND SERVICES

This website SITE is intended to offer an ever evolving insight into my practice: both as an artist and a worker. I am using the categories of Projects, Services and Collaborations to provide multiple entry points into my work. Ideally visitors will be able to make links between each of these sections, as an important aspect of my artistic production is recognizing the ways in which all of my labour (artistic and otherwise) overlap in ideas and ideals.

Projects:
I am not restricted by medium, instead my works take on the forms required to best represent the ideas and concepts considered by each project. In many of my works I bring everyday items into the rarefied space of the gallery, and it might not always be clear what constitutes the work. My practice produces a minimal amount of waste.

Services:
I take on many different roles and positions in order to make it possible for me to make my work and my life sustainable. Gig work, such as cooking and preparing crew lunches, providing education workships, djing parties, working as a house painter or as a barista in a coffee shop, allows me time and flexibility to make work as an artist.

Collaborations:
As I am not tied to any specific medium I often work with others to produce aspects of my work. This assistance is integral in helping me to realize my vision into material. With such a focus on labour in my work, it is important that these workers are paid fair labour costs when helping to produce work.

A Guided Tour of a Speckle, Dandelions and Other Things (Picnic#1+2)

Unsettling Residency / Scarborough Canada

A Guided Tour of a Speckle, Dandelions and Other Things (Picnic#1+2)

Curated by: Bojana Videkanic

I facilitated a “non-expert” walk in the surrounding area of the Guild Park (Scarborough, Ontario) where I explored features and facets of the site in relation to the settler’s position on it. The walk considered highlights of the proposed location and experiencing it through the eyes and limited knowledge of a visitor.  The walk ended with a site-specific picnic: snacks and refreshments were provided. comfortable footwear was recommended.

The walk involved the green screen.  The green screen was used as a formal technical material to imagine the disappearance of certain structures and highlighting small aspects in the peripheral.   There was no maximum number of participants.
