Performances for Hearing Voices engage the body with sculpture through basic acts of labour (walking, carrying, holding, lifting, pushing and pulling) in everyday public places. Performances are focused on encounters with people and places, without pre-planned spectatorship and take place in general areas (neighbourhoods) in villages, towns, and cities on Vancouver Island. If you are out and about for a walk, errands, or other daily events, you may see me engaged with sculpture in your area. Dates and general locations of performances are posted below.
Performances in each location have been made possible with the support of inspiring galleries and residencies on Vancouver Island including Legacy Art Gallery, Comox Valley Art Gallery, The Sointula Art Shed. Hearing Voices is generously supported by the Canada Council for the Arts.
