busy getting ready for three presentations of my work in Vancouver this September: a performance for LIVE 2013 International Performance Art Biennale, a collection of video works at the Liu Institute for Global Issues at U.BC. and a reading @ Word Festival. Looking forward to showing in the city and getting some feedback from you! Here's a little info about what to expect.
First up, the performance, a collaboration with Leannej called Human Identification at a Distance.
And finally, I've been invited to read from V6A: Writing from Vancouver's Downtown Eastside for the Word Festival ( formerly Word on the Street), which will be happening outside the main VPL branch @ Georgia and Robson. I'll be reading a piece called Skid Row: Establishing Footage, which is composed entirely of language culled from Film Production notices posted in the DTES. Its from a series I call Shoot Me!, which explores the often uncomfortable narrative overlaps between what's being scripted and what's being played out for real in the neighbourhood. Look for me on Sunday, September 29th in the C.U.P.E. Poetry Tent, sometime around 11 AM.
If you're able to make it out to any of these events, I'd love to hear what you think. At any rate, hope to see you soon.

In Hoarding, objectives overlap and narratives collide, inviting the viewer/reader to decipher the shared storylines and uncover the individual convictions of each artist and perhaps, as a result, consider the infrastructure of their own personal discourse.

Two days wading through sudden summer rains and steamy heat, moving east to west, along Gerrard, jogging up Parliament onto College and over to Dundas and back again, marching south through Cabbagetown and Leslieville, meandering north, up Spadina and beyond, skirting the fringes of the 'Annex' and wandering further, almost lost, towards the borderlands of the 'Junction'. New developments, old neighbourhoods, different histories, same problems.
