‘ENGAGEMEANT’ was an exhibition of collaborative works, which began when our AILN group simply picked names out of a hat to pair randomly with another (or in one case two others) we may not have previously worked with. It became a process of discovering common sensibilities, preferences of materials, willingness to compromise, diverse insights, and abilities to problem solve within a unit.
Images of the resultant works are as follows:
Faktura 2014 Robin Ripley | Shirley Wiebe
Tournezla la Manivelle 2014 Haruko Okano | Tiki Mulvihill
R24 2014 Fae Logie | Tiki Mulvihill Thanks to Paul Spong for the original audio track.
Dinner Improv 2014 Sharon Kallis | Pierre Leichner The collaboration: each bring 10 items that fit the designated categories and then have 2 hours to plan and make the meal before our partners joined us for dinner. We decided that oil, butter and flour were basics, and not needed as listed items, we did not share what our items were before meeting to cook. Thanks to David Gowman for photo documentation.
Transpiration Stream 2014 Nicole Dextras | Fae Logie | Marina Szijarto
