Traces

Explores the links we create between past and present, how narratives are forged from fragments of history by gathering the traces of those/that which came before.’

 

 ‘Traces’ is a multimedia project that will include a gallery exhibition of photographic and hand drawn pieces/tracings, as well as two performance based pieces, one of which will be accompanied by spoken word.

The photographs will be living ‘texts’, images of ‘traces’, markings left by something/someone that is no longer there. The audience is meant to ‘read’ these images as they would read a text, deducing and piecing together what may have constituted the time before and after the image was taken, its history and future. Also included in the gallery exhibition will be tracings I will hand draw of objects/people that relate to the theme of ‘traces’.

 

 

 

Past Projects:

 

The Tea Party:

a performance by the outskirts artist collective: Camille Metcalfe and Jaime Black

 

26, 27 July 2010

 

The Tea Party is a collaborative performance that seeks to open a space for dialogue between the public and the private sphere by aesthetically positioning the private within the public. This staged juxtaposition, in the form of a high tea party held in public space on Winnipeg's North Main Street, ruptures the viewer’s notions of the public and the private, creating an interstice in which ideas of race, class and gender are redefined. The use of the colonial tradition of high tea as a marker of class privilege and excess in the context of a deeply stratified social hierarchy seeks to generate a parodic and unsettling commentary on contemporary social issues.
