Miss Solitude : Cuttings made it on the Humble Arts Foundation list of A Number of Really Good Photobooks Published in 2017. There are so many gems on this list, so I'm very happy and honoured to be included!
I'm excited to be joining the Faculty of Arts at Emily Carr University as a sessional instructor.
I contributed one image from Miss Solitude to the new online show "On Beauty" at Humble Arts Foundation. Roula Seikaly and Jon Feinstein curated a thought provoking exhibition with many gems and new discoveries.
"The images that we received and ultimately chose to exhibit reinforce that photographic interests and practices are as wildly divergent as ever, and that artists are emboldened to explore subjects that two decades ago wouldn’t enjoy a wider viewing audience. That exploration, that desire to subvert dominant attitudes toward or definitions of beauty, suggests to us that a burdensome cultural stranglehold is loosening, and may someday be broken outright.
My project Lying Still will be part of the Exhibition trash cans for hearts and people have no soul at Fotofestiwal in Lodz, Poland. The show is curated by Augustin Rebetez and runs from June 1st til June 11th.
Tonight I will talk with Grant Arnold, curator at the Vancouver Art Gallery, about my recent work Miss Solitude and the role of the photograph as both image and found object in my practice. Join us at Access Gallery at 7pm.
We just launched a limited edition printed folio, Miss Solitude: Cuttings, comprised of images from my Miss Solitude series and eight poems composed by poet and novelist Marguerite Pigeon. It's now available at Access Gallery or you can order it through this website.
I'm very excited to be included in Charlotte Jansen's book Girl on Girl: Art and Photography in the Age of the Female Gaze. The book launch will be at the Photographers Gallery in London on April 6th. There will be a panel discussion between the author Charlotte Jansen, and artists Juno Calypso and Maisie Cousins followed by the launch and a signing.
Images from my Lying Still series are included in a group show in Mumbai, India as part of the Focus Photo Festival. The show is called Photographing the Female and is a transnational project and exhibition that explores female identity and representation in photography through the lens of contemporary lens-based artists.
Piece of Cake Collective (which I'm part of) was asked to participate in this wonderful group exhibition which opens at Aperture Foundation in New York this week. There will also be a series of dialogues and events that investigate the photographic collective as a model for responsive artistic production.
