Slack

2014


previous      next

I had a project called “Slack” in a group exhibition called Black Diamond Dust at the Nanaimo Art Gallery in the fall of 2014.  For this exhibition, I worked with a piece of coal that was mailed to me in Sointula by the exhibition curator Jesse Birch in Nanaimo.  (One of the meanings of the word ‘slack’ is a fragment or pile of fragments of coal.)

More information on the exhibition here.

A review of the exhibition can be found here.
