TANYA LUKIN LINKLATER: SUN FORCE
August 9 - 18, 2017
“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.
