R.I.P. The Official End of an Era

Perhaps this should be titled "It's ok to cry when you say goodbye to a metallic friend you have to sell for scrap because you can't afford to fix it and it will be squished and mutilated and stripped of parts and you are kind of an animist".

Today my van died and has been towed to the scrap yard. So sad! I will have to replace this part of my identity...Well I guess it's cheaper to pimp my bicycle anyways.

Good news is that the amazing contemporary throat singer Tanya Tagaq has agreed to let me use her song Origin for the Harbourfront shadow puppet play performed in (and filmed by) Libby Hague's Free Radical extravaganza. For more info on Tanya Tagaq's throat singing you can see her work here ---->www.tanyatagaq.com Special thanks for the permission of Jericho Beach Music

OOoooooo you should check out her awesome video Tungijuq here---> x

The Windbag & the Beginning

Well here is the first excerpt from my performance(Libby did all filming!) at Libby Hague's stage for her Free Radical exhibition in the Too Cool For School exhibit at Harbourfront on the 21st of November. The kalimba music is from Jono played who kindly improvised on the spot. Thank you to Libby Hague and Jono Gooch you are both completely awesome!!

Gris, le Grisgris Chauve-souris

I have a piece at Diagonale (a gallery specialising in fibre art) benefit auction which runs 27 novembre au 4 décembre 2010.
It is a grisgris, a charm to watch over You made of fur, lace, feathers, sequins, Japanese paper, wire, miniature flower ribbons, 2 eye milagros bought from a street market in Patzcuaro, Mexico during the day of the dead ceremonies. O lalalla I am sad to sell him, may he find a fun new home.
O and he did find a lovely new home! L’acheteuse est Lise Létourneau
You can see some of the other artist's works here ----> x
