land line

Oct 3, 2020 – Formalizing a series of video installations produced in collaboration with textile artist Meghan Price‘Land Line’ opens today in Toronto at YYZ (covid restrictions in place). In pursuit of an embodied experience of landscape, the work was produced through a series of actions set in the geologic landscape of Killarney Ontario. Through a lexicon of provisional tools and actions, the work articulates a process of geologic and deep time inquiry, foregrounded by chance, the tactile, earth’s forces and the everyday. Land Line runs to Dec 19, 2020.

Meghan and I share studios in Toronto and are occasional art collaborators.

Union House Residency

#Price/Nacha, studio collaboration, Union House Arts, 2019

August 30, 2019 – Just returned from an artist residency at Union House Arts in Port Union, Newfoundland. Equal parts historical restoration, contemporary art initiative and community outreach, the residency is housed in an historic building – part of the only ‘Union built’ town in North America. Located along the coast of the Bonavista Peninsula, the backdrop to this residency is one of spectacular coastal geology and (during my tenure) the second iteration of the Bonavista Biennale; a bi-annual contemporary art exhibition set in outport communities along the peninsula by Indigenous, Canadian and International artists. While in residence I spent time with Biennale artist and art collaborator Meghan Price, hiking the coastal geology and continuing to engage in ideas around scale in geologic landscapes; a part of our collaborative project debuting at YYZ in Toronto next fall (2020).

Thank you Union House Arts!

Fieldwork & Collaboration

August 01 2019 – Currently thinking back to three week’s fieldwork in Killarney Ontario this past summer. Contemporary textile artist Megan Price and I spent this time working on a video collaboration that will debut next September 2020 at YYZ in Toronto. The project explores the relationship we have to geologic landscape. How for example, we try to make sense of our human time scale in relation to deep geologic time. Or how attempts to constrain the earth’s physical complexities through mapping, naming and depicting often come up short. Through an open investigation utilizing physical place and natural forces along with tool making, artistic rendering and mapping; our fieldwork and final video project seek to playfully highlight the complex relationship we have to the earth.
