Deep Bay Artists' Residency at Riding Moutain National Park
As artist-in-residence at the Manitoba Arts Council's Deep Bay Cabin, I investigated erasure, anecdote and invisibility as carriers of meaning in the production of works of art. My intention was to pursue a creative project outside traditional frameworks for dissemination and presentation, and to emphasize relational modes of production: each day of the residency, I created drawings in various locations in and around the park, and engaged in frequent discussions with park visitors and hikers. At the end of the residency, the public was invited to participate in this project in a collective erasure performance that took place on a lawn bowling site. The erased sheets of paper where then burnt in a firepit to mark the end of the residency project. None of the drawings were documented.
I gratefully acknowledge the support of the Manitoba Arts Council in making this project a reality.
