PERFORMANCE

TANYA LUKIN LINKLATER: SUN FORCE

August 9 - 18, 2017

Signy Eaton Gallery, Art Gallery of Ontario

 

“Dancers perform specialized labour and over many years they obtain a deep understanding of the body. I am compelled by the body as a way to know – as a way to transmit knowledge.”

— Tanya Lukin Linklater

 

As artist in residence at Art Gallery of Ontario, I was invited to respond to Rita Letendre's Fire & Light. After a series of rehearsals in the gallery, a performance with dancers, Ceinwen Gobert and Danah Rosales, happened on August 18 at 7 pm within Rita Letendre's Fire & Light. 

 

I also was in conversation with Wanda Nanibush, who co-curated the exhibition on Sunday, August 13 regarding my process.
