1 In studio

2 Open Action Night

Performance Soirée

L'Grand Festin d'Art Ici

Sound of Silence

This performance is durational and can last for as long as the sound does. First performed in studio in October 2019, the drawing can take place anywhere. Here, I used soft pastel on fabric. 

The second time I performed  Sound of Silence was during our first Open Action Night (a project space I facilitated with my friend Merlin Heintzman Hope), taking place in Concordia University’s visual arts building in an old cafe space. This time, I began before people noticed. As the chattered away I drew out their sounds until the began to notice. Some tested me, making specific noises to see what I would catch. I asked to be interrupted by another sound-based performance in order to finish. 

There is no documentation of the third edition, performed during the Performance Soirée at the VAV Gallery. At this time I drew on the floor, and the gallery technicians did not respect my needs. Dance music was playing, thumping right behind me, blocking out all organic sounds. It was definitely a challenge, but certainly not the ideal location for this to occur.

A fourth and otherwise undocumented edition took place at L'Grand Festin d'Art Ici in Jarry Park in september 2020.
